Press Release 10/7/2019 – Alamosa Public Library Hosts NaNoWriMO
November will be the 20th anniversary of The National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). NaNoWriMo is a non-profit organization that supports aspiring writers with a community of similar writers and free online tools (like a word count keeper). Professional writers can also use NaNoWriMo as a social network. And, in cities around the world, NaNoWriMo volunteers “coordinate communal writing sessions in thousands of partnering libraries, coffee shops, and community centers” (https://nanowrimo.org/what-is-nanowrimo).
This year, the Alamosa Public Library will be a Write-In space for NaNoWriMo. Dedicated Write-In sessions are tentatively scheduled for Tuesday evenings and Saturday “brunch” but could change or expand with Write-In participant demand. Community writers of all levels of accomplishment can call the library to become an official part of the Write In group: Just leave your name and contact information, as well as your favorite time of the week (while the library is open) to write. NaNoWriMo token prizes will be awarded to a limited number of participants, so interested community members should call the library and get signed up as soon as possible. Official Write-In session times will be announced in the last week of October. Drop-ins will be welcome all month. Library resources, including public computers, laptop work spaces and study rooms are also available. Sign-up today by calling 719-589-6592.
