Happy NaMoWriMo! It is officially November, which means it is officially National Novel Writing Month as well. The event began in 1999, and last year there were over 480,000 participants. Over 1000 libraries, bookstores, and community centers found new ways to engage their communities in writing and creativity.
The goal? Write a novel in a month. The official website offers support through mentors, pep talks, community forums, and more. You can track your progress and watch others as well. During the off months, NaMoWriMo supports writers through the editing and publishing process with their “Now What?” webinars. They even provide publishing professionals for advising.
Over 250 NaNoWriMo novels have been professionally published. Will yours be next?
