What is NaNoWriMo?
A creative writing challenge to write a novel during the thirty days of November. For adults, the word count goal is 50,000 words, which is, roughly, the word count of a short novel. Writers 17-and-under get to set their own reasonable, yet challenging, word count goals through the Young Writers Program (YWP).
To help you prepare, the Cushing Library will be hosting “How to Write a Novel in 30 Days” on October 17th at 1:00pm to explain what NaNoWriMo is about and what you need to know to get started.
Want to write a memoir? A screenplay? Don’t care for the set word count goal? Still want to write, hang out with other writers, and find encouragement? Join us and find out about NaNo Rebels.
Participation in NaNoWriMo and all Cushing Library Write-In events is free. There are no judges. Criticism, critique and inner editors are left at the door.
The reward? The rough draft of your novel.
Calendars with Cushing Library Come Write In events are available at the circulation desk.
