NaNoWriMo : National Novel Writing Month

NaNoWriMo Events

The Oshkosh Public Library is an official destination for National Novel Writing Month. We welcome writers to hunker down anywhere in the library throughout November, but be sure to visit the First Floor Reading Room, where you will find plot ninjas, handouts and other materials to keep you inspired. 

What is NaNoWriMo?
Monday, October 26 at 6:30 p.m.

Lower level meeting room.
What is National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo? The largest writing project on the planet! What’s that? You have little or no writing experience? No problem! We’ll give you tips and tricks to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. Think you can’t do it? Oh yes you can!

NaNoWriMo Kick-off Party!
Sunday, November 1 at 2 p.m.

Located in the First Floor Reading Room.
You’ve committed to writing a novel this month – we’ll see that you get off to a great start. Come with paper or laptop and be ready to write!  Refreshments will be served.

A Night of Writing Dangerously
Saturday, November 7 from 6 to 11 p.m.

Located in the First Floor Reading Room. Note: The Library will be closed to the general public; use main entrance adjacent to parking lot.
Tonight’s goal is to write 1000 words. Maybe you’ll only write 200. The point is, you don’t have to write alone. Join us for light snacks and heavy whining – then it’s time to start writing!

Halfway Home
Sunday, November 15 from 2 to 4 p.m.

First Floor Reading Room.
Are you over 25,000 words at this point? Whether you are or not, stop in and write with friends. Remember: It’s about quantity, not quality. We’ll help you silence your inner editor so you can add words and get closer to your goal.

Sugar Rush
Wednesday, November 18 from 9 to 11 a.m.

First Floor Reading Room.
So many donuts … so few words. Fuel your writing with juice and bakery. The goal this morning: Get your word count higher than your blood sugar level!

Thank Goodness It’s Over Party!
Monday, November 30 at 6:30 p.m.

First Floor Reading Room.
Join your fellow authors in a celebration of your effort, win or lose. Refreshments will be provided.

Events are sponsored by the Oshkosh Public Library in partnership with the Oshkosh Area Writers Club, with generous funding from the Friends of the Oshkosh Public Library.
