November is National Novel Writing Month

[Attachment] Do you want to write a book someday? Are you waiting for an auspicious time? The time is November!

Join us for a Q&A on National Novel Writing Month with tips on drafting 50,000 words in 30 days.

The kick-off session on November 1st will be followed by Write-Ins at the library on the following days:

Write-Ins are gatherings of NaNoWriMo participants to discuss the craft and challenge each other to writing sprints. Refreshments and prizes will be provided, with an awesome door prize for each session, free of cost. Write-ins let you come together with others to talk about the craft and bounce ideas, or huddle in a corner and just write!

For more information, sign up for free at and home yourself to the Lewiston-Auburn region.

This year, youth are invited to participate in NaNoWriMo as well through the Young Writers Program![Attachment]

Join kids and teens all around the world in tackling the fun, frightening, and totally unforgettable challenge of bashing out an entire novel - or short story, or poetry collection, or whatever - in one month.
