NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month): Home

Guide with resources and programming for NaNoWriMo

Create-A-Story 2018

Don't have time to write 50,000 words? No problem! You can still participate in NaNoWriMo by joining our Create-A-Story program!

From November 1-30 2018, you can drop into the Writing Resource Center (inside the Irving Shapiro Library) during their open hours or make an appointment online beforehand.

At the Writing Resource Center, you will write a couple of sentences about the theme, "The Life of An Artist". Your peer tutor will help to edit and polish your writing. The catch? You have to build off of the last student's contribution.

Every participant will be entered into a raffle to win a NaNoWriMo travel mug!


All participants in Create-A-Story will be published in "Abstraction", the AAA student magazine, where your contributions will be put together into one awesome story!

What are you waiting for? Come visit the Writing Resource Center and Create-A-Story with us!
