National Novel Writing Month, better known as NaNoWriMo, is an annual online program that challenges its participants to write 50,000 words in only 30 days. An officially recognized nonprofit organization, the Office of Letters and Light are responsible for the creation of NaNoWriMo, which every November allows thousands of individuals around the world to contribute their time, energy and literary genius to the project.
This November NaNoWriMo is coming to DC Public Library!
For the entire month of November, every Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., novelists can come to Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library to work on their novels. Registration is free and optional, but once registered, participants can track their progress, get online support, reference help, and a reserved space to work Tuesday through Friday at participating DC Public Libraries. Have fun now and edit later!
