National Novel Writing Month Activities at Keene Library

 “Come Write In” the Keene Public Library

The Keene Public Library is participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a nonprofit event that encourages kids and adults to tackle the challenge of writing a novel in November. The Keene Public Library will offer a dedicated and welcoming place to write with “Write-Ins” to be held each Saturday from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. WriMos and others can bring a laptop or paper and pen and WRITE. The library invites all aspiring and veteran writers can get together and simultaneously pen NaNo masterpieces. The library has scheduled a meeting room so that there is room to write. Simple refreshments and inspiration will be provided. 

NaNoWriMo participants pledge to write 50,000 words in a month, starting from scratch and reaching “The End” by November 30. There are no judges and no prizes. The 50,000-word challenge has a wonderful way of opening up your imagination and unleashing creativity,” says NaNoWriMo Founder and Executive Director (and multiple NaNoWriMo winner) Chris Baty. “When you write for quantity instead of quality, you end up getting both. Also, it’s a great excuse for not doing any dishes for a month.”

Young people can also take the NaNoWriMo challenge. The Young Writers Program allows participants who are 17 years-of-age and younger to set reasonable, yet challenging, word-count goals. 

All programs at the Keene Public Library are free and open to the public. The Keene Public Library is located on 60 Winter Street Keene, N.H. for more information, please call (603) 352-0157 or visit the library’s website at www.keenepubliclibrary.org.
