NanNoWriMo is coming again to Appletree

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo to those in the know) and we want you to come write in our front windows! In November 2016, dozens of writers wrote in our windows, and the responses from all involved were amazing.

In November 2017, Appletree again invites writers of all ages, all formats, and all genres in the Greater Cleveland area to be our featured artists of the month by writing in our front windows!

You need not be a novelist or a professional writer to participate! We’ll provide a table, chair, and an outlet. You bring your writing implements of choice,your imagination, and your determination.

Students and NaNoWriMo participants are especially encouraged.

Have questions? Feel free to contact Appletree staff member
