The Jefferson Community College (JCC) English Department is hosting a writing workshop series titled Brown Bag Scribes every Friday from 12:20 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in Jules Center (Building 6), Room 6-110, through December 6, 2019. Individuals just beginning to explore writing as a new vocation and published authors alike are welcome to attend. There is no cost.
Brown Bag Scribes offers a low-stress, low-pressure environment for writers to work on their craft simultaneously with others who share the same passion.

Workshop dates and themes are:
- October 18 – Family
- October 25 – Horror/fear
- November 8 – Nature
- November 15 – Love/hate
- November 22 – Praise/Thanksgiving
- December 6 - Seasons
Workshops will not be held on November 1 or November 29.
In addition to Brown Bag Scribes, JCC will hold workshops for folks interested in taking the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) challenge to pen a 50,000 word manuscript between November 1 and November 30.
