November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and for many people it means writing, writing, and more writing, until they have written 50,000 words of a novel by the end of November. Now in its 19th year, NaNoWriMo challenges participants to write a new/original work in 30 days—between 12:00 a.m. November 1 and 11:59 p.m. November 30. It’s a fly by the seat of your pants way of creative writing; however, this writing marathon is also the perfect challenge for those who want to jump-start a novel.
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo 2017? November is just around the corner and Ohio Center for the Book at Cleveland Public Library would like to help you prepare for this writing adventure! Join us in the Literature Department (Main Library, 2nd floor) Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 3:00, for NaNoWriMo Prep. Learn what you need to know to get started. Participants will receive (while supply lasts) a writing survival kit to help them stay inspired and motivated to the very end. Every week in November, Cleveland Public Library will provide dedicated writing space for participants to meet, write and find resources to help them with their project.
