What do the books Water for Elephants, The Night Circus, Fangirl, and Cinder all have in common? They were all written during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Each November, NaNoWriMo participants attempt to write a 50,000-word novel by the end of the month. Participants can create a free account at www.nanowrimo.org where they can join virtual write-ins, track their word count, earn badges, find writing tips, and interact with fellow writers!
In 2014, 849 libraries, bookstores, and community centers opened their doors to novelists through the Come Write In program. Burlington Public Library is excited to host our first NaNoWriMo Write-In on November 28, 2015 from 12-5 PM. Bring your laptop, notebook, or scribe to the Burlington Rotary Community Meeting Room where we’ll have tables, chairs, outlets, Wi-Fi, and free snacks. You may also use one of our public computers or laptops (but no snacks allowed there) on a first-come, first-served basis.
Can’t make it to the Write-In? Come use the library any day to write your novel! A list of published NaNoWriMo participants can be found here.
