NaNoWriMo 2022

November 1st, 2022 - November 30, 2022

NaNoWriMo is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing! Join local authors as they embark on writing 50k words during 30 days and nights of literary abandon.

Bud Werner Memorial Library & Off the Beaten Path Bookstore are proud supporters of National Novel Writing Month.

What is NaNoWriMo?

This creative novel-writing endeavor is open to all aspiring authors. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-words) novel by midnight, November 30.

Get started!

Interested novelists should visit the official NaNoWriMo website to learn more about the national program and sign up early.

Where to gather and "write in"

  • Bud Werner Library: The Library is a comfortable, quiet, and well-lit place to work on your novel all month long. Write at the spacious desks where there are ample plug-ins. Peer out the picture windows when you need inspiration. Use the free computers and WiFi to research important details for your plot. Get to know our reference librarians when you need a hard-won fact. Let the Off the Beaten Path Bookstore Library Cafe sustain your needs for refreshments with coffee and baked goods.
  • Off the Beaten Path: The bookstore provides cafe space where writers can team up for camaraderie, encouragement, and social writing time, plus ample caffeine and snacks all day long.
