CHECK IT OUT: November is National Novel Writing Month

CRESTVIEW— November is almost upon us, and that means National Novel Writing Month!

The goal of National Novel Writing Month is to write at least 50,000 words in one month.

National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) began 22 years ago with a simple premise: to write a minimum of 50,000 words in one month. Now hundreds of thousands of writers from around the world participate each year, with as the central hub of support from published authors, mentors, and peers.

At the Crestview Public Library, you can find guidance on your literary adventure at one of our two writer’s groups!

We host a Youth Writer’s Group for ages up to 17 on the first Monday of every month and an Adult Writer’s Group for 18 and above on the last Monday.

Don’t miss this opportunity to write a new chapter in your journey, and join us next month:

  • Youth Writer’s Group: 6 p.m. Nov. 1
  • Adult Writer’s Group: 6 p.m. Nov. 22

Both groups meet at the Crestview Public Library, 1445 Commerce Drive. We hope to see you there!
