November is National Novel Writing Month! Come join the NMSU Library for a series of events designed to help you conquer the challenge of writing a 50,000 word novel in just 30 days. 

The NMSU Library will host a free event on Tuesday, November 1st at 4:00 p.m. at Branson Library (1305 Frenger Mall) to celebrate the start of National Novel Writing Month. National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, is an annual internet-based writing project that takes place during the month of November. Participants are challenged to write 50,000 words. No previous creative writing experience is required! 

Since 1999, over 3 million writers from more than 200 countries have participated in NaNoWriMo. Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress (all three!), Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Sarah Gruen’s Water for Elephant and thousands of other novels and writers got their start during NaNoWriMo.

During the event attendees will receive information on NaNoWriMo, the library's events for the month including Write-In times, and information on how to connect with other writers. Food and drinks will be available. This event is open to the public.
