What the heck does NaNoWriMo mean?

It’s the shortened version of National Novel Writing Month, which happens to fall in November. NaNoWriMo is a literary event designed to get aspiring writers (and even those who’ve only thought fleetingly about writing a novel) off the couch and onto the page. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30.

Not up for a 50,000 word tome?

Here at the UW-Baraboo/Sauk County Library, we have our own programs designed to spark literary genius. In partnership with the Baraboo Public Library, we’re continuing with the Palm of the Hand memoir writing workshops – including one tomorrow, Nov. 5th. Newbies and experienced memoir writers are welcome to attend. It’ll be held here in the campus library at 6:30 p.m. Who knows – maybe it’ll be the start of your NaNoWriMo novel!

Can’t join us tomorrow?

Don’t fret! We’ll also be hosting a Palm of the Hand memoir writing workshop next month. Like November’s session, it’ll be in the campus library at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3rd.
