NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) Events  

This November, people all over the world will attempt to write a 50,000-word novel by midnight, November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.

You can sign up by creating free accounts at, the official site for National Novel Writing Month. There you will be able to post your daily (or hourly, or second-by-second) word counts, display samples of your writing, or discuss your progress and questions on multiple forums.

Ready to commit to a month of writing? The Olathe Public Library is here to support you! Join us for a write-in session. We'll provide encouragement, resources, a tranquil environment, and fuel (caffeine and ideas). Don’t worry about writer’s block, fun and helpful writing prompts will be provided.  

At the end of the month,  we'll host a wrap-up celebration where you can join other NaNoWriMo participants to celebrate your work! Refreshments will be provided alongside advice for the next steps in the writing process. Writers are encouraged to bring in their work to share with the group.

Friday, November 15 & Friday, November 22 from 3pm to 5:30pm at Indian Creek

Wrap-up and Celebration
