National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel. The Huntington Library will be an Official Write-In Partner for this year’s NaNoWriMo session. Visit from 6-8pm every Tuesday in November and write in a cozy, quiet space. The library will provide the coffee and laptops (if needed), so all you need to bring is your creativity!
The Huntington Library will also host a writing workshop Wednesday, October 28th from 6-7pm to kick off NaNoWriMo. Del Doughty, a professor at Huntington University, will discuss the writing process and beginning a novel. As a seasoned participant of NaNoWriMo, his tips and tricks will keep you writing all November long.
Both the write-ins and the writing workshop are free and open to teens and adults. For more information, call the Huntington Library at 260-356-0824. The Huntington Library is found at 255 West Park Drive, Huntington, 46750.
