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.
