Love books? Write one!

 

National Novel Writing Month  (NaNoWriMo) is an annual creative writing project which challenges participants to write a 50,000 word novel between November 1 and 30. Last year, we held this clinic and a small group of students helped each other make extreme progress in their writing. This year, we’re doing it again!

The Atlanta Young Writers Institute invites you to come write your books with us!  In our 5-week NaNoWriMo seminar we will plan, write, and FINISH our novels together.

The AY-WriMo Group will meet every Saturday from 2-4 p.m. from November 1st through November 29th.

The Seminar will provide:

  • a real-life community of young writers  with whom you can form friendships and share writing tips
  •  workbooks and  activities to help you address issues like plot holes, character development,  and writer’s block
  • fun challenges and games that will keep your novel-ing momentum going and help  you reach your word count goal
  • stickers, buttons and certificates, oh my!

And yes—we will contact your English teacher and ask him/her to consider giving extra credit to the winners.

Age: All Middle and High School-ers welcome

Cost:  Free!

Dates: every Saturday from 2-4 p.m. from November 1st through November 29th

Location: Starbucks on West Paces Ferry (1203 West Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30327)
