30 Covers, 30 Days 2017: An Introduction


Recruiting all Wrimos! Fall is upon us, prep season is in full swing, and November is fast approaching—which means it’s time for one of our favorite parts of NaNoWriMo: 30 Covers, 30 Days!

What is 30 Covers, 30 Days?

Thirty very lucky Wrimos will be chosen to have a cover for their 2017 NaNo novel designed by one of the many talented designers recruited by our wonderful coordinator, Debbie Millman.

Debbie is a writer, educator, artist, brand consultant and host of the radio show Design Matters—not to mention President of Sterling Brands for the last twenty years and President Emeritus of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. So don’t worry, your novel is in very capable hands.

We’ll be posting a new cover every day of November, both on this blog and on our forums. If you’d like to see what some of our previous covers were like, you can check them out here.

That sounds cool! Sign me up…er, how do I sign up?

It’s easier than ever. All you have to do is submit your novel using this form.

A few things to know before you submit your novel:

1. Your form can’t be edited once you submit it—so please read the entire form carefully. 

2. You do not have to use your real name. We celebrate and encourage pen names!

3. If your novel is selected, we’ll get in touch with you, and we can all jump for joy and hug and then all cry together (happy tears).

4. If you have any other questions about 30 Covers, 30 Days, feel free to post in the forum, or send me a NaNoMail.

In the meantime, check out NaNo Artisans on the forums to get a cover designed by a fellow Wrimo, or design some yourself. 

Now go for it! Your cover is waiting…
