Writers have all month to meet the task, so if you’re feeling up for a challenge, go to https://library.shoreline.edu/ff for more details and a judging rubric.

NaNoWriMo Workshop: Eavesdropping on Our Characters

5:30-6:30 p.m., Nov. 13; Ray W. Howard Library (Rm. 4202)

What makes a story memorable? Perhaps it’s the plot, the setting — or is it the dialogue? “Eavesdropping on our Characters” will head this year’s series of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) workshops to help you come up with memorable conversations for your characters. After all, the spoken word is perhaps one of the most crucial aspects when transforming books into movies.

Auditions for “The Threepenny Opera”

Nov. 19, 6-9 p.m.; SCC Theater

Nov. 20, 6-9 p.m.

Perhaps you’ve heard Bobby Darin’s swinging 1959 hit “Mack the Knife.” If so, prepare for the musical that started it all: 1928’s “The Threepenny Opera” is coming to SCC, and you can audition for a spot in the classic extravaganza. Humor, crime and topical themes abound in this classic German play by Bertolt Brecht, along with plenty of jazzy songs.

NaNoWriMo Workshop: Describing Characters

6-7 p.m., Nov. 20; Ray W. Howard Library (Rm. 4202)

Have you ever tried writing a story only to have its characters fall flat or seem too one-dimensional without believable personalities? SCC professor and Seattle Times writer Vince Barnes is here to help you in that very field. At the college’s second NaNoWriMo workshop, you can learn to conquer one of fiction’s most difficult tasks: Crafting the personalities who drive the plot.

Student Afternoon Recital

12:30-1:30 p.m., Nov. 22; SCC Music Building (Rm. 820)

The first recital of the year sees SCC’s hardworking music students performing a variety of pieces that they’ve practiced through private lessons. At this free afternoon showcase, drop by the music building to show your support and be serenaded at the same time.
