Here are the details:

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), is an annual international literary sensation that inspires people from all walks of life to dust off their literary ambitions and finally write that novel they’ve always dreamed of. Participants are challenged to write a 50,000 word novel, start to finish, in the month of November. Whether you’re a novice writer or a well-published professional, NaNoWriMo offers you a great way to jump-start your writing life, or zap new energy into one that’s been stalled. Wherever you are in your writing journey, NaNoWriMo can help you tell your story!

Teens and Tweens: Are you serious about writing? Join us for a jam-packed session of writing games and inspiration!  You’ll meet other young WriMos (NaNo Speak for fellow participants) and discover  all the great stuff for young writers to guide you NaNoWriMo and the rest of your novel journey. We’ll have a surprise NaNoWriMo author stop by to share tips and tricks for writing your novel!
