You Up for the NaNoWriMo Challenge?

Write a novel in a month! Track your progress! Get pep talks and support! Meet fellow writers online and in person!

Every Saturday in November, join us for snacks, caffeine, and camaraderie as you make your journey through the 50,000-word marathon that is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).

NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel, so get ready for a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

We’ll meet up from 4-6 PM in Meeting Room C — Teens and Adults welcome!
