National Novel Writing Month is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that believes all stories matter. Each year, writers sign up to pen 50,000 words in the month of November, with pep talks and tips from published authors and lists of local places participating in write-in events. Register now at www.nanowrimo.org to take part in this program! All library events are free and you don’t need to register with the library to attend. And you can stop by the library anytime to work on your writing!
