Files & Links

This page contains a resource library of hotlinks to help you on your writing journey. Materials from 2023 and before reflect a time when our group was affiliated as a region of National Novel Writing Month. As of 2024, we have disaffiliated from NaNoWriMo and function as a stand-alone writers’ group under the fiscal stewardship of the Lakeshore Literary Foundation.
