“NaNoWriMo,” as it’s otherwise known, is free and open to all–students, staff, faculty, high school or grammar school students, and community members!
During November, nearly a half a million participants around the globe work to meet their writing goals. Many of these writers have gone on to publish their work!
Moraine Valley is now an official “Come Write In” location for the event, which means you can use our campus as a base for completing your writing. But since part of the NaNoWriMo experience is connecting with other writers, Moraine Valley is here to help!
Join us for:
- Information sessions in October to learn how NaNoWriMo works
- Workshops to help you plan your novel before NaNoWriMo officially begins
- A kickoff party!
- Write-Ins during November—essentially, writing parties where we write alongside each other, cheer each other on, and win prizes! Did we mention free refreshments?
- A wrap-up party when we’re done, with prizes and word count reveals
“I’m going to participate in the NaNoWriMo challenge because I feel it will help me improve my time management in finishing a story, as well as be therapeutic due to the classes I have this semester.”
