We'll have a Writers Lounge for those seeking a communal writing space. Although the Writers Lounge must change location each day due to function space limitations, we will try to create a comfortable and supportive writing environment that is usable by any Attending member of WFC 2014.
We will provide electricity, hydration for bodies, and an atmosphere of encouragement! Flip charts will be available for 'Take It or Leave It' writing advice. All writers may stop by to 'leave' a favorite word, a burst of encouragement, or a piece of fresh wisdom. Other writers can 'take' the challenge of prompts, ideas, and the inspiration left behind.

Happy Hour is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in the LobbiBar on the Lobby Level. Sample our specialty drink: French 75.
