National Novel Writing Month



Do you have a great idea for a book? Need some structure to help you get that novel drafted? Join us for National Novel Writing Month! NaNoWriMo is an annual, international creative writing program that takes place during November. Participants attempt to write a 50,000-word manuscript (or a series of short stories – we’re not picky!) between November 1 and November 30.
