As someone who loves to write, you might be familiar with the term “NaNoWriMo”, but if this strange word is unfamiliar to you, let me briefly explain.

November is National Novel Writing Month.
National – Na
Novel – No
Writing – Wri
Month – Mo

All together you get NaNoWriMo. 

You might have heard of the NaNoWriMo challenge, which takes place every November.  The NaNoWriMo challenge is to write a complete 50,000-word novel in 30 days.  It’s a crazy challenge, but doable.  It only takes about 1,670 words a day. 

But all good writers know that to be a good writer, you need to write often, and not just one crazy writing-spree once a year. 

Welcome to Camp NaNoWriMo!  In the months of April and July, writers are encouraged to spend time and just write.  It can be a story you are currently working on, a new story, fanfiction, poetry, anything!  But, no matter what story you are working on, the goal of Camp NaNoWriMo is to spend time writing.

In July, Harris County Public Library is going to host nine virtual Camp NoNoWriMo writing programs, including five write-ins.  What is a “write-in”?  A write-in is a live program where the hosts and participants spend time writing together.  It’s actually a lot of fun and a great way to get creative while meeting other writers.

If you have ever thought about writing a book or you just love to write, join us Facebook, YouTube or right here at on Virtual Programs. All events will be live and hosted by librarians who have a passion for writing.
