Teen NaNoWriMo Come Write In

WriteCome Write In sessions are designed to offer help with planning, structuring, writing and editing your novel.  At these sessions, you can meet up with other participants to share experiences and discuss the process.  You’ll also receive timely hints to help you along the way.

Throughout the month of November, we will hold NaNoWriMo Come Write In sessions for teens (ages 13-19) participating in the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program at Fort Bragg Library.

These sessions will vary in time each day to give each participant a chance to attend a time convenient to them. Please check the CALENDAR for each session.

Questions or concerns, please contact Amie @ 964-2020.

What is NaNoWriMo, you ask?
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. *(17 and under choose their own word count goal with a minimum of 5000)

Placing value on enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for any teen who’s ever thought about writing. The end result of participation in the Fort Bragg Library NaNoWriMo program is (courtesy of Friends of the Fort Bragg Library) your very own, published novel!

What others say about NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program:

“My classmates and I wrote novels in our English class for National Novel Writing Month. Through this program, which had my entire class intrigued, we learned how to develop a plot, build character descriptions and foreshadow through writing our novels. It felt like we, the students, were in control, even though we were being guided by our teacher.”

“Room for Debate: A Passion for Learning is Hard to Quantify”
The New York Times, July 2012

“To the students who participate, it is life changing… Two of our authors have gone on to self-publish their novels, and we have added their titles to our collection.”

“Rev up for National Novel Writing Month”
School Library Journal, October 2014
