Starting on November 1st, 2013, writers participating in the NaNoWriMo challenge will be furiously pounding their keyboards as they attempt to write an original novel of 50,000 within 30 days. Why? Because November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, the world’s largest writing event and nonprofit literary crusade. Participants pledge to write 50,000 words in a month, starting from scratch and reaching “The End” by November 30. There are no judges, no prizes, and entries are deleted from the server before anyone even reads them.
Want to join in on the fun? Sign up for our writing workshops! You don’t have to be participating in NaNoWriMo, but if you’re interested in learning more about how to get published, this is a great way to start. Our fourth and final workshop will be What It Takes to Get into Publishing. The most difficult part of writing a book is getting it published. There are many different routes to publication open to today's authors. This panel will take a look at the various aspects of each, its pros and cons. Should an author follow the traditional path (finding an agent who will then pitch the book to publishers); find a small press on one's own; or self-publish? We will also look at print vs. e-books. Feel free to come to the meeting room early to get some writing time in. For more information on NaNoWriMo, visit their website at http://nanowrimo.org/
