What is Camp NaNoWriMo?

  • Camp NaNoWriMo is a writing event that happens in April and July. It's different from NaNoWriMo in November because you can work on ANY type of creative project, not just a novel. First drafts or revision, scripts or stories or poems or essays... all are welcome! Just set a goal and get writing. 

Visit Camp on YWP to learn more!

How can you participate?

  • Create your Camp project on the YWP site and write in our one-of-a-kind writing space, complete with stats, charts, dares, and word sprints. Chat with other young writers doing Camp in the Camp NaNoWriMo forum. Just accept the Camp NaNoWriMo dare from your Dashboard to get started!

  • 13 or older? Sign up for a Camp NaNoWriMo account to track goals based on word count, hours, or pages and join an online cabin with up to 20 other writers.
