Nonfiction Coffee Klatch: Write-In Edition

Date(s) - 06/05/2022
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Registration is open!


Join us Sunday, June 5, 2022, at 4:00 PM PDT!


Our Nonfiction Series Coffee Klatches are open to anyone who creates nonfiction for children. Writers, illustrators, and writer-illustrators at all levels are welcome. The purpose of these gatherings is to facilitate peer-to-peer connections through informal collegial discussions and work sessions.


This FREE virtual meetup using the Zoom platform requires registration. Please note that registration will close at 12:00 PM Pacific on Friday, June 3, and participants will receive the Zoom link via email no later than June 4. Nonfiction Coffee Klatches are not recorded, so no replay will be available.


What to bring: your WIP, still-in-formation book concept, sketchbook, topic to research, or your desire to come up with an idea for a brand-new project. In other words, come as you are and keep going from there. There is no wrong way to do this!


The facilitator will explain the process and in-event schedule at the start of the meeting, so please try to arrive on time. If you join us late and we’re in a quiet writing/creating mode, you will see a notice to that effect and your audio will be muted by default.
