Ready, Set, Go NaNoWriMo!

14 October @ 18:30 - 20:30

About this Event

Are you ready? NaNoWriMo is about getting the words down, each and every day. It’s a fun, serious word sprint. But how do you prepare? How do you get the most out of it? Join Victoria Villasenor for some tips and tricks on how to win your NaNoWriMo run!

Through discussion and activities, you’ll concentrate on what work you can do beforehand to prepare for NaNoWriMo, how to consider your schedule, and what to expect from the experience.

For those of you new to NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month and is a month-long creative writing challenge that takes place every November. During the month, participants from all over the world are challenged to write a 50,000 word first draft of a novel.
