Moose Meeting Room
The monthly program of the Alaska Writers Guild supports Alaskan authors through various workshops, presentations, and panels on a myriad of writing and publishing topics. 

OCTOBER PROGRAM

In the Know with NaNoWriMo!

You might have heard November is NaNoWriMo--National Novel Writing Month. But do you know there's an entire network of write-ins, events, and fellow Nano-ers that come with it?

Author Dante Medema will moderate this discussion between local NaNo coordinator Genevieve Beloin and Library NaNo liaison Nancy Clark.

Genevieve Beloin was born and raised in Vermont, but has lived in Alaska for the last 4 years, which is also how long she's been participating in NaNoWriMo. She started as a co-municipal liaison, and then took over fully as of two years ago. When she's not writing, she works full time as an associate architect, and does plenty of adventuring and landscape photography with her husband when they can find the time.

Nancy Clark is a life-long Alaskan and manager of the Chugiak-Eagle River Branch of the Anchorage Public Library. She delights in matching readers with their next good read, especially in the romance genre. A NaNoWriMo participant since 2015, Nancy doesn’t see any reason to quit now because writing is awesome.

Dante Medema is a mother to four girls, a Young Adult author, and a regular participant in NaNoWriMo. Her debut novel The Truth Project comes out Fall 2020 from HarperTeen. She's a member of SCBWI and 49 Writers, and serves on the board for The Alaska Writers Guild

Please visit www.AlaskaWritersGuild.com for detailed descriptions of monthly topics. All programs are free and open to the public.

The Listening Post

11:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Z.J. Loussac Public Library
Atrium A
At the Listening Post we believe listening with our full attention and compassion has powerful results.

There is a level of dignity we can offer as one human being to another: We can listen. Everyone's story is different. Some stories are difficult, some daring, some happy, some sad. But there is something we all have in common - Being Heard Matters. 

Everyone deserves to be listened to. That is what The Listening Post is here to do - honor you, offer you respect, and hear your story.
