Write the first draft of your novel in 30 days with:

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)

Join over 300,000 participants in the free novel writing challenge!

It has been shown that writers are much more productive if they have a deadline. Writing a 50,000 novel first draft is less than 2,000 words per day. You can do it!

National Novel Writing Month is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (formerly known as the Office of Letters and Light) that believes your story matters. Their mission statement:

National Novel Writing Month organizes events where children and adults find the inspiration, encouragement, and structure they need to achieve their creative potential. Our programs are web-enabled challenges with vibrant real-world components, designed to foster self-expression while building community on local and global levels.

Through all our programs, we work to empower and encourage writing and vibrant creativity around the world:

  • The Young Writers Program promotes writing fluency, creative education, and the sheer joy of novel-writing in K-12 classrooms. We provide free classroom kits, writing workbooks, Common Core-aligned curricula, and virtual class management tools to more than 2,000 educators from Dubai to Boston.
  • The Come Write In program provides free resources to libraries, community centers, and local bookstores to build writing havens in your neighborhood.
  • Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writing retreat, designed to provide the community, resources, and tools needed to complete any writing project, novel or not.

If you want to participate, you should start planning as soon as possible to make a better experience.
