Historic photograph of the author Nathaniel Hawthorne

Date: November 3, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

“Halfway down a by-street of one of our New England towns stands a rusty wooden house, with seven acutely peaked gables, facing towards various points of the compass, and a huge, clustered chimney in the midst.”

Nathaniel Hawthorne had hoped to finish The House of the Seven Gables by November, but, like many writers even today, finishing a novel on deadline can be difficult. In honor of National Novel Writing Month, the Witch City Writers will introduce you to famous first lines of historical and modern literature. Join us for 30 minutes of speed writing using those lines as inspiration and conquer the blank page.
