Get inspired this summer with Camp NaNoWriMo!

camp nanowrimo

Camp NaNoWriMo is a writing event that happens in April and July. Think of it as the training montage before the big NaNoWriMo event in November. 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! You could even use it as a chance to plan out your NaNoWriMo novel ahead of time. 

We'll post helpful tips from Camp Counselors in Breaking News, and you can chat with other writers in the Camp NaNoWriMo forum. Writing is more fun with friends!

Visit Camp on YWP to learn more!
