WRITING WORKSHOPS
If you've ever wondered how authors slog through the writing process to come up with a novel, well, slogging might not be the right technique. The Salt Lake Community Writing Center is holding a four-part workshop (NaNoWriMo: Write a Novel in a Month) offering a seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. They'll offer techniques to help writers crank out those 50,000 words in 30 days and end the month with a finished product. Don't worry about mistakes; they are part of the process. Coaching sessions will also be available during the week, pre-registration required. The cost to join in is $60. Salt Lake Community Writing Center, 210 E. 400 South, No. 8, 801-957-2192, Nov. 7, 14, 21, 28, 1-3 p.m., SLCC.edu/cwc

• A free Race Perspectives Workshop will help writers explore how racial identity plays out in our society. As part of the Utah Race Perspectives Project, participants will generate microstories, poems and essays about race, ethnicity and cultural identity, and may submit their work to the Race Perspectives website. Registration is free but required. Salt Lake Community Writing Center, 210 E. 400 South, No. 8, 801-957-2192, Nov. 4 & 11, 6-8 p.m., SLCC.edu/cwc

VOLUNTEERING
Do you want to help kids from the Road Home celebrate Halloween? Bob Chilton is looking for volunteers on Halloween to set up games, decorate trunks and work to provide 250 children a Trunk-or-Treat experience they can remember. Some 16 cars will be parked in an oblong shape within the Road Home's private, secured parking lot. Tax-deductible donations can be made on the Road Home's website to help buy shoes for the kids. Call Jackie Chilton, 801-657-2325 to offer time and assistance. The Road Home, 210 S. Rio Grande St., Salt Lake City, Saturday, Oct. 31, 1-3:30 p.m., TheRoadHome.org

GOOD CAUSES
Comunidades Unidas/Communities United is sponsoring its sixth annual Pink Dress Masquerade to raise awareness for breast cancer, health disparities and community integration. This event includes a breast-cancer-survivor fashion show, competitions for best locally designed dresses and best masks. Tickets are $40 each; call 801-487-4143 to avoid processing fees. The Leonardo Museum, Third Floor, 209 E. 500 South, Friday, Oct. 30, 7-9 p.m., CUUtah.org

ART EXHIBIT
Chad Farnes' Tapenography: Duct Tape Paintings explores a nontraditional approach to art. Farnes uses only duct and masking tape to create images. You'll want to see how Farnes layers strip upon seemingly insignificant strip of tape to produce stunning depictions of the National Park System. His goal is to explore the intersection between humanity and federal-land preservation. Finch Lane Gallery, 1330 E. 100 South, 801-596-5000, through Nov. 20, SLCPL.org/events.
