Your chance to give a participant pep talk!

Are you an experienced Wrimo who learned the hard way what it takes to write (and stay sane) in November? Your fellow writers want to hear from you!

We're looking for talented young people to write participant pep talks for publication on the Young Writers Program website this November. This is your chance to be inspiring (or hilarious), give advice, and motivate other writers to unleash their hidden creative superpowers and reach their word-count goals. 

Fill out this form by Monday, October 30 to submit a pep talk.

Check out last year's participant pep talks in Breaking News (scroll down near the bottom) to get a sense of what we're looking for, and be ready to give us a taste of the pep talk you would write in the last box on the form.

Unfortunately, we probably won’t be able to publish a pep talk by everyone who volunteers. If you don't get selected but still want to write one, we'll make space in the forums for everyone to share. You can never have too much inspiration in November...
