NaNoWriMo with JMRL

NaNoWriMo logo.November is National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. The NaNoWriMo challenge is simple, but certainly not easy: to write an entire 50,000-word novel in one month.

JMRL has planned a few events to help writers who are participating in NaNoWriMo. Feel free to attend these events or swing by the library anytime to work on your novel.

NaNoWriMo Kickoff Party
Monday, November 2 at 6-8pm
Northside Library
Celebrate the beginning of the NaNoWriMo challenge by picking up writing prompts and exercises, worksheets, and other writing resources while enjoying light refreshments. Dive right into your novel while you’re here, or just relax and connect with other writers.
No registration is required.

Come Write In: A NaNoWriMo Workspace
Every Tuesday in November (November 3, 10, 17, & 24) from 6-8pm
Central Library, Madison Room
Drop in to the Madison for a quiet space to work on your NaNoWriMo challenge. Light refreshments and coffee will be served!
No registration is required.

NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up Celebration
Tuesday, December 1 at 6-8pm
Northside Library
Now that NaNoWriMo is over and you’ve lived to tell the tale, ease back into real life by celebrating the end of the month with other WriMos. Stop by to swap stories about your successes and failures, enjoy treats, and relax without worrying about your word count. All NaNoWriMo participants are welcome, regardless of the final status of your novel.
No registration is required.

The Central Library hosts a creative writing group for writers that you can attend if you need additional help with your novel. Feel free to join the group in November, or any month of the year.

Creative Writing Group
Third Wednesdays at 6pm (November 18)
Central Library
Explore a world of creative writing with activities and prompts to get your creativity flowing. Feel free to share your work in this non-judgmental environment.
Registration is requested, but not required. 

Although it won’t be meeting in November, the Central Library also hosts a writing critique group, which usually meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month from 6-8pm.

For more information on these events and other writing resources at JMRL, please visit, email, or call 434.979.7151×4.
