The North Carolina Writers’ Network encourages “the serious pursuit of writing excellence. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have serious fun.” Join the fun on Thursday, August 12, 2021, 7pm, as the North Carolina Writers’ Network hosts its first-ever online Game Night. This free event is open to anyone with an internet connection or telephone.
Game Night will function as a progressive night of entertainment. Writers will be randomly assigned to a game room and switch rooms every twenty minutes. All writers will get to play in all rooms.
- Collaborative story: Build a tale sentence by sentence over the course of the evening with tens of other writers!
- Lit-Triv Pursuit: Test your knowledge of North Carolina books and authors with a fast-paced, challenging game of trivia!
- Obit Mad Libs: Create obituaries for fake humans, working off prompts!
Says NCWN Communications Director Charles Fiore: “Even though venues are opening back up and people are getting more comfortable meeting in-person, offering an online event like this still has its advantages. An online event means not having to drive anywhere. It means being able to roll from family dinner right into a marvelous shindig without so much as putting on your shoes. And most importantly, it allows the Network to fulfill its mission of connecting writers all across the state and beyond. At Game Night, we expect to host players from all over, from the mountains to the sea.”
Registration is open; register now via the online form. Space is limited for this online event.
Game Night will be facilitated by Fiore, Deonna Kelli Sayed (Membership Coordinator), and Gretchen Thomas (intern).
Once registered, participants will receive an email from one of the facilitators encouraging them to “brush up on NC literary trivia, and get ready to have some writely fun.” Instructions for accessing the event will be sent to registrants no less than twenty-four hours prior to its start.
The nonprofit North Carolina Writers’ Network is the state’s oldest and largest literary arts services organization devoted to writers at all stages of development. Visit www.ncwriters.org.
