NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) Kickoff Party

Saturday, October 27 | 2:00-3:30 PM | Traverwood Branch

If you've ever thought about writing a novel, here's your inspiration: NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)!

Join us for the big Kick-off Party, hosted by the local NaNo liaison Eric Foldenauer! This event includes refreshments - so come and enjoy and get your creative juices flowing as we begin this extraordinary month! Meet other local writers to inspire you to face the challenge!

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a non-profit event that encourages teens and adults to tackle the challenge of writing a novel during the month of November. Participants begin writing on November 1 with the goal of writing 50,000 word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59, November 30.

NaNoWriMo writing sessions will be held at Traverwood Branch during November – but get a head start and celebrate with this great kick-off party.

This event is for adults and teens (grade 9 and up).


Thanks for hosting us! It was great to have such a crowd for the kick-off!

There will be several more events planned at the library through November beginning this Saturday, November 3 when Traverwood Branch hosts a write-in from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. Keep checking the "Events" tab for other library NaNoWriMo events in November and into early December.
