Congratulations, NaNoWriMo Writers!

Whether you reached 50K this November or not, one of the most important things that NaNoWriMo can help you do is jumpstart a creative habit. It doesn’t matter if it takes you one month or ten years to finish a draft; the fact that you’ve taken the time to tell your story makes you a winner in our eyes. Join us in January and February as we take you through the revision, editing, and publishing process during our “I Wrote a Novel… Now What?” months!

“NaNoWriMo is… just the beginning.”

“NaNoWriMo is… where ‘I’ve always wanted to write’ becomes ‘I am a writer.”
