Write Your Novel at Leddy this November!

Want to write a novel in November?

Have you always wanted to write a novel? This November, you can write your book at the Leddy Library!

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  NaNoWriMo is a non-profit organization that fosters community and support in creative endeavours. 

The challenge is this: write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days! So many people get bogged down worrying about grammar and writing poignant prose that they can’t finish a novel.  Write your first draft during NaNoWriMo, and the editing can wait until December!

The Leddy library will be hosting write-ins every Thursday evening from 6 PM – 9 PM in Leddy Library West building room 302.

Thursday, November 1st will be the Kick-Off Party, which will have fun games, snacks, and treats to be won! Please RSVP here.

Some famous novels that were written during NaNoWriMo:

  1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  2. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
  3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
