The Night Shift

Attention all procrastinators and night owls (you know who you are)! Work overtime on your own short story or novel in a literary stimulating environment (with drinks!), share your hard toil with fellow writers and receive tips and feedback from a professional writing teacher. For the ones who rather receive a writing exercise for the night, we’ll bring an analog writing generator (bearing striking similarities to our professional writing teacher). Check http://www.thewritersguide.nl for more information.

Time: 22.00 – 04.00 hrs.

Entrance: 25, -

Common language: Dutch, but English texts are allowed
