Writers: Work on Your Craft in Mark Twain’s Library in 2018

Here’s a rare chance to spend three hours in Mark Twain’s personal library to work on your writing project.

Take inspiration from the house where Twain wrote Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur’s Court.

The focal point in the library is the oak mantel from Ayton Castle in Scotland.  Twain recited poetry, told stories, and read excerpts of his new works to family and friends in the Victorian setting. The room is adjacent to the conservatory with its running fountain and lush plants. Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain, lived with his wife and daughters in this house from 1874 to 1891.

You may do your writing on your own laptop, but there are no electrical outlets or WiFi. Pencils only; no ink pens.

Each session is limited to 14 participants.

Registration is required. Register online.

Sessions are $75 and run from 6 to 9 pm  on Thursday, April 19 ; Thursday, June 14, as part of the Royal Nonesuch Humor Writing Contest; Thursday, July 26; Thursday, September 27, the Back to School Edition; Thursday, November 1,  in honor of NaNoWriMo; and Friday, November 30, in honor of Mark Twain’s birthday.
