NaNoWriMo @ Oakton: Discover Your Muse

Posted on October 14, 2011. Filed under: Event, Information | Tags: , , |

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

Check out our NaNoWriMo LibGuide for more information on NaNoWriMo, Oakton Library’s NaNoWriMo workshops and write-ins,  and helpful resources for our budding NaNoWriMo novelists.

Interested in joining? The Library is pleased to host a series of pre-NaNoWriMo workshops led by Lori Oster, Assistant Professor of English at Oakton to help people prepare for November 1st.
