Write with other novelists during November’s 30-day novel challenge!

Ready to take the 30-day novel writing challenge but need a quiet, pleasant space and a supportive environment to write? Then come to Cowork Frederick in Downtown Frederick, MD, and write with other novelists working toward the same goal.

This write-together program is sponsored by the Write Directions Institute and Cowork. Writing sessions will be held on these Saturdays, 9 am-2 pm:

  • Nov. 4
  • Nov. 11
  • Nov. 18

In addition to the camaraderie, you’ll get access to coffee, tea and other beverages; a fridge to store your lunch (should you choose not to eat at Downtown’s many great restaurants), and free Internet access. Bring your own notebooks and laptops. Printers are not provided — but camaraderie is!

Each Saturday session is $14.
