NaNoWriMo Write-a-Thon: Jump-Start Your Novel!

by Jacob Smit on 2022-11-09T09:11:00-08:00 | Comments



This is a weeklong series of drop-in write-a-thons. Day one includes a 30-minute crash course in novel writing by Juan Reyes, English Professor at Seattle University. The following days include supported writing time with writing activities, support from library Faculty and staff, and more!

You'll have the opportunity to contribute to a collaborative zine and share your tentative title or a bit of your writing––and take home your own copy at the end of the week! 

We all know how helpful inspiration and motivation can be to getting in your writing groove, let's write together!


NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is a global challenge for people to write the first 50,000 words of a novel. It began in 1999 and now every year on November 1st, hundreds of thousands of people start writing the first 50,000 words of a brand-new novel.
