NaNoWriMo – Are your pencils sharpened?

by | Nov 1, 2010 | Resources & Links

IT’S HERE! NaNoWriMo starts TODAY!

Short for National Novel Writing Month, NaNoWriMo is an amazing writing event that takes place every November.

I love that NaNoWriMo also has a Young Writers Program that’s open to children 17 and under. The challenge? Pump out a novel in 30 days.

According to the website, “The only thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It’s all about quantity, not quality. The high-velocity approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.”

Free Resources

NaNoWriMo offers some great resources to help your students along their writing journey—“new and improved, 100% awesome, non-lame” Young Novelist Workbooks.

You can download the workbooks here absolutely FREE! Choose from:

  • Elementary Student Noveling Workbook
  • Middle School Student Noveling Workbook
  • High School Student Noveling Workbook

Ready for a crazy, roller-coaster November? Register here for the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program!

    This is a great project for kids! In fact, if the thought of entering the adult version seems too intimidating for the grown-ups, the kids’ version is a good “wading-into-the-water” project for adults, as well!
