DESCRIPTION: Book-in-a-Night is a writing marathon where the community writes a book in a single night. The first contributor will be given a random setting, two human characters, a non-human character, an issue, and five random words at the start of the evening. Each collaborator will add a composition or phrase in sequence, only being allowed to see the end of what the previous person has contributed. The story will be put on display at the end of the evening.
