National Novel Writing Month @ BPL

Coat of arms with a book, cup of coffee, pair of pens, and a computer

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is an annual, internet-based creative writing event that takes place in November. Participants from around the world can sign up at and commit to writing 50,000 words. Using the website, you can log your word count, share your work, get motivation, find a write-in nearby, and get support from other writers.

Get started on your novel by joining other aspiring novelists at write-ins throughout the month of November at Berkeley Public Library. Look for workshops throughout the month to help!
