NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is an event that takes place every November challenging writers of all skill levels to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Beginning as a frenetic writing endeavor in 1999, NaNoWriMo soon blossomed into a national and even international month of literary abandon. If you’ve ever dreamed of writing a novel, now is your chance. MCPL’s Story Center offers a number of ways for you to begin your journey this November. Happy writing!
