National Novel Writing Month Is Not Just for November

The goal is to write 50,000 words in one month. Writers register at NaNoWriMo.org and keep a running tally of their progress, and share their novel’s current word count and synopsis.

November is National Novel Writing Month

It’s November and that means National Novel Writing Month is here again! Participating in National Novel Writing Month, or as it is more commonly known, NaNoWriMo, is a great way for public libraries to support aspiring authors.

Beyond the First Draft with NaNoWriMo

Keep your NaNoWriMo participants engaged all year with writing help and programs that go way beyond their first 50,000 words.


NaNoWriMo a Great Way to Teach Literacy

It’s easy to engage young readers. Librarians do it all the time with reading programs and story hours. Yet how can those in the library profession engage older readers? By encouraging them to write their own stories. The month of November is perfect for integrating writing into library literacy programs: it’s National Novel Writing Month!
