Face to face and Virtual Weekly Meetings

The Tuscarawas campus library will facilitate two weekly meetings a month and broadcast via ZOOM.. 

The meetings are held in two ways. Face to face meetings at participating regional libraries and virtually through ZOOM. 

If you don't already have a Zoom account, visit to create your account. 

Visit the links below for each virtual meeting if you can't come to a face to face meeting. 

Our first meeting will focus on how to use Nanowrimo and how to get writing. Writer's groups help writers bounce ideas of each other, spur you to continue on and create a writing community. 

You may join a meeting any time, use the discussion board area on this page, or use Nanowrimo groups to get advice and help you get off to a good start with your writing project. 

Get ready, Get Set, WRITE!!!

Everyone has a story inside them just waiting to be told. 

We will begin our first meeting on Tuesday Nov. 5. You may attend face to face at your campus or attend virtually by creating a Zoom account (see information on creating an account on the left hand side of this page) and joining through the link below. 

We will meet every Tuesday and Thursday, throughout the month of November, to support you with your writing. 

The purpose of the group is to support each other as we take this journey together. No one is required to attend meetings, but it has been shown that having the support of a writing group can prevent writers block. 

Our first meeting will cover signing up for your Nanowrimo account and if you like throwing out some ideas, some fears and some hints on how to get started with your novel. 



We would love to have you join our discussion.
