Washington Libraries Offering Weekly Support for National Novel Writing Month | KCII Radio
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is an annual challenge for aspiring writers to write at least a 50,000-word (165-page) novel in just 30 days. Last year, more than 400,000 people participated in the challenge, founded in 1999 by a group of writers in the San Francisco Bay Area. If an author reaches the 50,000-word mark and verifies their word count on the organization’s site, they receive two paperback copies of their work for free.
To help local residents take on this year’s challenge, the Washington Public Library will open its Rebook Room on the lower level of the library to offer a quiet writing space and snacks for writers. Library Director Carrie Ann Siegfried spoke with KCII about the library’s first year celebrating NaNoWriMo.
“We’re trying to support local writers, so to celebrate NaNoWriMo, we’re opening our rebook room every Monday-Thursday from 12:00-6:30 p.m. It’s open to writing for other writers. This is our first year to do so, and we look forward to being able to support local writers here in Washington.
The library will also organize writers’ workshop on November 12th At 10:00 a.m. he’ll talk about Biblioboard, a service that can assist writers in creating manuscripts ready for publication. For more information about NaNoWriMo, contact the Washington Public Library.
