National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), the largest writing event in the world, challenges people to write 50,000 words of a novel in the 30 days of November. More than half a million people on all seven continents (including Antarctica) are expected to participate.
The Visalia Branch of the Tulare County Library is serving as a “Come Write In” space, offering its meeting room and light refreshments during selected dates throughout the month of November. Tuesday Write Ins will be on November 18 and 25 from noon to 3pm. Thursday Write Ins will be on November 6, 13 and 20 from 4:30-7:30pm. Both sessions will be held in the Visalia Branch Purple Room. A Thank God It’s Over wrap-up party will be held on Saturday, December 6 from 2-4:30pm in the Visalia Branch Blue Room.
NaNoWriMo is celebrating its 16th year of empowering diverse voices with supporting writers in the classroom, and building creative-writing communities around the world. This year, 816 liaisons will coordinate in-person write-ins, turning local coffee shops, bookstores and living rooms into writing havens.
