Build new worlds with Camp NaNoWriMo in July!

camp nanowrimo

Our July session of Camp is just around the corner! Accept the challenge from your Dashboard and start planning your next great project (or make plans to finish or revise one you already started). Your goal progress will start updating on July 1! 

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!

Tired of working on novels? Here are three other projects you could try:

  • World-build with us! Get ready for NaNoWriMo in November by using this July to build the world of your novel. Check out all our world-building resources and get ready to explore the vast reaches of your imagination!

  • Take one of your story ideas (even one you've worked on before) and turn it into a script for a TV show. Watch a few episodes of your favorite shows (bonus!) and take notes on what happens every few minutes: what's the opening scene like? What percent is dialogue vs. other kinds of action? Think about how you could SHOW a viewer what's happening in your story rather than just telling them about it. Check our our script resources for support!

  • Write a memoir! A memoir is a collection of stories about moments or events in a person's life. No matter how old you are, you've got compelling stories to tell! Jot down a list of memorable experiences, then choose a few you'd like to write more about. Memoirs can jump around in time, too - you could start writing about the day you got your pet cat and end by reflecting on what it means to graduate middle school, or how it feels to grow up. We're running a special Camp Memoir track this July. Check it out to learn more.
