National Novel Writing Month Interest Meeting

Ever wanted to write a book? NaNoWriMo challenges you to pen a novel in a month. Come to library room 106-D on 10/13 @2pm to learn more!

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing!

Have you ever wanted to write a novel? November is National Novel Writing Month, and it may be just the time to try! On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel. There is no judgment on quality or content; everyone who finishes 50,000 words by November 30 is a winner!

Join us in library classroom 106-D at 2pm on Saturday, October 13 for a interest meeting/meet and greet!

There will be refreshments, and all your questions about NaNoWriMo will be answered. We can even get you registered and set up so you'll be ready to roll on Nov. 1!

Can't join us in-person? No problem! There is also a virtual interest meeting at the same time!

If you're interested in NaNoWriMo but can't make it to the library, no worries! Join us online via Chatzy using this link at 2pm on the 13th!
