National Novel Writing Month

Nov. 1 will mark the start of National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo at the Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library. 

NaNoWriMo is an annual creative writing project that takes place throughout November. Participants attempt to write a 50,000-word manuscript between Nov. 1-30.

The Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library will serve as a come write in location. Participants will be able to visit the library each Wednesday at 6 p.m. in November for free workshops, brainstorming sessions and encouragement from fellow writers. 

“We hope people can be motivated to put their voice to paper,” said Jason Camp, public services associate at the Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library and organizer of this year’s NaNOWriMo events. “Regardless of ability, we want all writers to be able to achieve their goals, build community and hopefully be inspired to write the next great novel.”

Come write in events are free to the public and open to all ages. For more information about NaNoWriMo visit
