Ready to Write a Novel?

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 about writing a novel.

Want company while you write, fellow writers that you can bounce ideas off of? Stop by the weekly writing sessions at the Moline Library going on all month.
