Pikes Peak Writers December Events



December Write Brain 

What: Loglines & Holiday Hangout

Who: Come One, Come All

When: December, 20, 2016, 6:30-8:30pm

Where: Venue Room at 21C – Upper Floor, to the right if coming in the Upper entrance. 1175 Chapel Hills Dr. Colorado Springs, CO 80920

More Information: For our December Write Brain, we’re hosting a super fun activity around developing a log line for your book, a White Elephant book exchange, and the opportunity to hang out with your fellow writers… and eat lots of cookies!

We’ll be having multiple door prizes, giving away books from all four of our Keynote Speakers coming to Pikes Peak Writers Conference in April: Kevin Hearne, Darynda Jones, Tess Gerritsen, and Donald Maass. Don’t miss your chance to win!

First, our PPW President, J.T. Evans, will present a short class on log lines: quick and dirty tricks for nailing down those all important few sentences that capture the essence of your story. Then we’ll be practicing writing log lines, and reading them out loud. You can give it a try on your own story, or even one published by other authors.

For the White Elephant Book Exchange, bring any book you choose to trade in, whether one you’ve published yourself or another. It doesn’t have to be a brand new book as long as it’s in good condition. Wrap the book in either brown paper bag or the back side of wrapping paper. The idea is to write a log line for this book on the outside. We’ll try to identify the title from your description and do a White Elephant style exchange to see who gets to take which book home!

Come mingle with the PPW staff and volunteers for a relaxed Holiday Hangout. Light refreshments will be served. You are welcome to bring cookies or snacks to share but please help us honor the library contract with the snack cart by limiting your goodies to dry snacks such as cookies (regular or gluten free), crackers and cheese, chips, etc.

FREE Writers’ Night
Because of the near proximity of the December Writers’ Night to Christmas, we are cancelling the Writers’ Night for this particular month.

We hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season. We’ll be back in full swing in January. Enjoy the time with your loved ones, and steal some moments from the merry making for writing.
