National Novel Writing Month Write In

National Novel Writing Month 2015 Participant

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a time when aspiring writers and novelists buckle down and write 50,000 words in 30 days. This year, the Kingwood Branch Library is hosting a write in and providing a space to write furiously! Writers can work on their novels on Wednesday, November 4 from 6:00-8:30 PM. This is an open lab where anyone is welcome to come in and write--it is not a presentation.

This event is for adults only. Check the Teen Programs for teen NaNoWriMo events. The Write-In will be held in the 1st floor Meeting Room. Light refreshments will be provided courtesy of FOLK. Power outlets will be available for those with laptops. Questions? Call 281-360-6804.
