Did you know?
…that every November over 300,000 writers start their word counts at midnight on Halloween and challenge themselves to 50,000 words in 30 days? National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) believes stories matter. The event began in 1999, and in 2005, National Novel Writing Month became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
NaNoWriMo’s programs now include National Novel Writing Month in November, Camp NaNoWriMo, the Young Writers Program, Come Write In, and the “Now What?” Months.
And did you know that in 2014:
325,142 participants worldwide, including 81,311 students and educators in the Young Writers Program, started the month as auto mechanics, out-of-work actors, students and middle school English teachers. They walked away novelists. How awesome is that?
Locally, our group is hosting a public Kick-Off in partnership with the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System
