The Third WGF Late-Night Library Write-a-Thon

This event is sold out. Please email for more information.

Our first and second late-night library write-a-thons were tremendously successful – every seat in the place was full from beginning to end. Every pizza slice consumed. Every laptop plugged in. Every page filled. Every Twitter feed idly scrolled through in procrastination.

And you guessed it: We’re doing it a third time. So join us again on May 16, and bring along whatever you’re working on for the Austin Film Fest or Final Draft’s Big Break or Writers on the Verge or the Disney ABC Writing Program or whatever you’re applying to this year.

Here’s what lies in store for those who hang out with us:

  • Pizza

  • Delicious non-pizza snacks

  • Beverages (non-alcoholic, but still)

  • Giveaways and prizes

  • Our entire library staff, at your service all night

Please note that on the day of the event, the library will be closed to the public for a private event – but you can begin lining up for the Write-a-Thon at 5pm. The Write-a-thon begins at 6pm, when we’ll begin offering pizza, snacks, and fun giveaways. The cover charge (a steal at five bucks) covers your attendance from 6pm to 11pm. Check-in for the event will begin at 6pm. Space is limited, so register early! And please note we are limiting this event to two tickets per customer.

And though we encourage you to apply to as many contests as you can, we don’t endorse any one contest over all the others.

Thanks to our friends at Final Draft for supporting this event. They’ll be there with us, offering a demonstration of what you can do with their software.
