Red Balloon Write In!

Come Write In!Every November a bunch of lunatics (including a number of our booksellers) collectively resolve  to write a 50,000 word novel in November.  That’s 1667 words a day, for 30 days, at the busiest time of year.  It’s an event known as National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo for short) and we think it’s fabulous. So this year we're hosting three Write Ins at Red Balloon! Whether you're working on a novel or a picture book or something else entirely, come join us--there will be snacks, wi-fi, writing prompts, and plenty of places to sit!

Plus, all month long, we'll be having a special sale on journals and craft books! They will start the month 30% off, and then the discount will decrease 1% each day to help you count down to the end of the month!

Tell your friends all about the NaNoWriMo festivities with our flyer!
