Writers Center’s Janie P. Bess to Host “Write-In” Sessions for National Novel Writing Month
Writers Resource Center will host a place where writers can come together for support, and to write, during National Novel Writing Month, November 1-30
By: Writers Resource Center
“This is something I’ve wanted to do for years,” says Bess. “I am really excited about providing an opportunity for local writers to come together for any support that they may need and a chance to, perhaps for the first time, tell their story. I am hoping lots of Solano County writers will get involved.”
Anyone interested in participating in the event must sign up on the NaNoWriMo website at http://www.nanowrimo.org for rules and other information. Those who submit a 50,000-word work of fiction by the November 30 deadline will automatically win a long list of prizes that have been donated by various national sponsors. A complete list of prizes will be posted on the website on December first.
National Novel Writing Month is a nonprofit based in San Francisco. It began in 1999 when only 21 people took the 50,000-word challenge. Last year more than 325,000 people in countries and cities throughout the world participated.
