National Novel Writing Month!

What is NaNoWriMo?
National Novel Writing Month began in 1999 as a daunting but straightforward challenge: to write 50,000 words of a novel during the thirty days of November. Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with 50,000 words of a brand-new novel. Learn more at NaNoWriMo.org.

Monday, October 28th 7PM NaNoWriMo Kickoff: Learn about National Novel Writing Month and meet other Wrimos. Hear from others who have successfully completed novels through NaNoWriMo.

Thursday, November 14th 6:30-8:30PM Come Write-In: Work on your novel among other Wrimos. Snacks provided.

Monday, November 25th 6:30-8:30PM Come Write-In: The Final Push: There are only a few days left to finish your novel! Join other Wrimos to meet your goal. Snacks provided.
