NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month

November 2018


What is NaNoWriMo?
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Every year, writers everywhere – both adults and teens – join together for support, encouragement and motivation as they attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days. You can sign up for the challenge at nanowrimo.org.

Write here!
We know you have a novel in you. And novels are one of our favorite things. That’s why, for the seventh year in a row, Portsmouth Public Library is here to support you! Find a quiet spot, borrow a laptop, browse the shelves for inspiration, or attend one of our many NaNoWriMo events to get your creative juices flowing. We believe in you!

Kickoff!

Sunday October 28 | 1:30 - 3:30 PM | Levenson Room
