Local authors plan for National Novel Writing Month

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 (50,000-words) novel during November.

Prospective NaNoWriMo novelists are encouraged to gather for an informal, inspirational kickoff meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the Library Conference Room. The meeting will include information, writing resources, pep talks and the beginnings of a novel writing support network.

During November, Off the Beaten Path will host after-hours Friday night Write-Ins for NaNoWriMo novelists from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Nov. 3, 10, 17 and 29 to provide camaraderie, encouragement and quiet writing time.

The library will also offer 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. For more information about the local events and support, visit steamboatlibrary.org/events.
