National Novel Writing Month at Portage Lake District Library

The Portage Lake District Library invites everyone who loves to write to explore their creative talents at a series of writing “sit ins” designed to encourage creativity, education and the power of the imagination.

Known as the largest writing event in the world, the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) “Come Write In” program will be held at the library on November 2 and 16 and on December 1 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. Participants are encouraged to write a 50,000 word novel during this one month period.

Last year, NaNoWriMo welcomed 431,626 participants in 633 different regions on six continents. Of these, 40,000 met the goal of writing 50,000 words in a month. This year NaNoWriMo expects nearly 500,000 people including students in grades K-12 and educators. Participants will receive weekly “pep talks” penned by published authors to bring an inspiring element to the experience of writing.

National Novel Writing Month is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that believes all stories matter. Through their programs including the Young Writers Program, the Come Write In program and Camp NaNoWriMo, they hope to empower and encourage vibrant creativity around the world.

Library presentations are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570.
