First Friday Open House & Open Mic: NaNoWriMo Launch Party!

  • 2301 Telegraph Avenue Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

Come celebrate the best month of the year: November, which for those who do not know is National Novel Writing Month. A month to sign up to write a novel in just thirty days with half a million other turbo-novelists around the world on or 

Activities will include:
-Writing your novel (we have plenty of power strips!)
-Watch others write their novels
-Reading parts of your novel,
-Or writing a very tiny novel with us and reading it at our open mic!

In the meantime we highly recommend signing up for NaNoWriMo. Young writers (0-18) can sign up on, and those 13 or older who want to take on the 50,000-word challenge can do so at Why do it? For 30 crazy, exciting, surprising days, you get to lock away your inner editor, let your imagination take over, and just create!

Novelist open mic will start at 7:30pm.

Fresh jams spun by XCAIROCITOSX and delicoius tacos available from Two Mamacitas Pop-Up Kitchen!

Come novel, make, drink, sing and read with us from 5pm to 9pm!
