Write a novel in a month during NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo

Can you write a 50,000-word novel in a month? Writers across the country do just that by joining in National Novel Writing Month in November, and we’re here at the library to offer support and resources for budding creative writers up to the challenge.

November is National Novel Writing Month, also called NaNoWriMo, and we are helping those who wish to write their very first novels do so all month long. NaNoWriMo is an annual event that challenges writers and would-be authors to write a novel in 30 days. The goal is to complete a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30. NaNoWriMo values enthusiasm, determination and meeting deadlines and is for anyone who has considered writing a novel.

See the list below for write-ins, critique sessions, and more to celebrate NaNoWriMo.  In addition to these programs, all of our branches offer public-use computers, private study rooms, and resources that can be used to aid in completing the National Novel Writing Month challenge.
