November Is NaNoWriMo!

NaNoWriMo is an annual Internet-based creative writing project challenging participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel.

The library is supporting NaNoWriMo participants! Check out these classes and events:

NaNoWriMo: Come Write In
Come write your novel during National Novel Writing Month. We’ll have some hints, tips, and tricks for beating writer’s block.

Porter Branch, Tuesdays and Thursdays in November, except November 23, 10:00–1:00
Salem Church Branch, Tuesdays and Thursdays in November, except November 23, 10:00–1:00

NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up Party
Salem Church Branch, Saturday, December 2, 2:00-4:00
Whew, you made it! Whether you completed your novel or are well on your way, you deserve to celebrate. Share some of your best pieces or just listen to other writers’ work. Join us for a wrap-up to a great month of writing!

If 50,000 words seems too much for you, why not try telling a story in just six words? Six-word novels are a great way to participate in our writing activities. 

So, join in the fun, write that book you’ve always wanted to write, and discover our rich writing community.
