Join NCWN for an Online Game Night!

The North Carolina Writers’ Network encourages the serious pursuit of writing excellence. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have serious fun.

On Thursday, August 12, at 7:00 pm EST, NCWN will host its first-ever online Game Night. 

This event is free, but space is limited. Registration is closed.

Game Night will function as a progressive night of entertainment. Writers will be randomly assigned to a game room and switch rooms every twenty minutes. All writers will get to play in all rooms.

Games include:

  • Collaborative story: Build a tale sentence by sentence over the course of the evening with tens of other writers! 
  • Lit-Triv Pursuit: Test your knowledge of North Carolina books and authors with a fast-paced, challenging game of trivia! 
  • Obit Mad Libs: Create obituaries for fake humans, working off prompts! 

“Even though venues are opening back up and people are getting more comfortable meeting in-person, offering an online event like this still has its advantages,” says NCWN Communications Director Charles Fiore. “An online event means not having to drive anywhere. It means being able to roll from family dinner right into a marvelous shindig without so much as putting on your shoes. And most importantly, it allows the Network to fulfill its mission of connecting writers all across the state and beyond. At Game Night, we expect to host players from all over, from the mountains to the sea.”

Game Night is available to anyone with an internet connection, or who even owns just a telephone. Instructions for accessing the event on Thursday, August 12, will be sent to registrants no less than twenty-four hours prior to the start of the event.

The nonprofit North Carolina Writers’ Network is the state’s oldest and largest literary arts services organization devoted to writers at all stages of development. For additional information, visit
