Operator: November 2021

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is here! 'Tis the season for big ambitions, crappy drafts, and feeling completely overwhelmed.We've got a few events collected below to help keep you connected and hopefully calm this month. Also, we are putting on another Catalytic Conversation with the Mad Duck Coalition on 11/20, this time focusing on when to call it quits and stop fussing over a draft, and when literary flourishes have run their course in our work. Sign up for free here.

As always, if you have a (preferably virtual) event coming up, send us the information at so we can help get the word out!

Stay cozy and creative,
