What is NaNoWriMo?

In 2006, NaNoWriMo officially became a nonprofit organization and not only do they have the NaNoWriMo challenge every November.

NanoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month, an annual challenge for people that enjoy writing stories to write a complete novel the entire month of November. They also have an event called Camp NaNoWriMo and Young Writers programs.

According to NaNoWriMo, they provide encouragement for those to be inspired and creative when writing stories and achieving goals in the community.

The Challenge

The NaNoWriMo challenge is to write 50,000 words throughout the entire month. To keep track of how many words you wrote, you can sign up to NaNoWriMo and make an account. 

When you do, you can access more info such as how-to pages, and also join virtual events held by the company.

In 2022, 51,670 people met the goals and became NaNoWriMo winners with 21,326 young writers (which is K-12th grade).

The website also offers writing-related resources, virtual events, and much more. The challenge officially starts at 12:00 am November 1 and ends at 11:59 pm November 30.

The organization is working on building communities all over the world. You can participate and get involved in local groups to volunteer.

NaNoWriMo is a fun challenge to inspire those who enjoy writing and literature to pursue their dreams to become novelists.
