Local authors gather for National Novel Writing Month inspiration

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Bud Werner Memorial Library and Off the Beaten Path bookstore are sponsoring National Novel Writing Month for local writers who will embark on writing a 175-page or 50,000-word novel during November. Prospective NaNoWriMo novelists are encouraged to gather for an informal, inspirational kickoff meeting at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29 in the library’s conference room next to Library Hall. Program information, writing resources, pep talks and the beginnings of a novel writing support network will be offered.

During the month of November, Off the Beaten Path is hosting after-hours Friday night Write-Ins for NaNoWriMo novelists from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 1, 8, 15, 29 and 30 to provide camaraderie, encouragement and quiet writing time. The library also offers writing and research resources and quiet spaces for NaNoWriMo novelists throughout the month.

Interested novelists should visit the official NaNoWriMo website at nanowrimo.org to learn more about the national program and sign up and visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more about local NaNoWriMo events and support.
