Wait, what’s happening?

Due to the measures many governments have taken and/or encouraged in response to COVID-19, the folks who are able to stay at home are doing so to protect their health and the health of their communities. Folks who provide vital services, including people who work at hospitals, grocery stores, and delivery services, continue to go to work to keep communities functioning.

Life has changed temporarily but drastically for many of us, and we are still in the process of adapting!

What’s #StayHomeWriMo?

To help engage our creativity and connect with others online while we're staying at home, we put together seven weekdays worth of activities you can try out to support your physical, mental, creative, and social well-being — and we’re calling it #StayHomeWriMo!

How do I participate?

We’ll share these activities each day here, and on Twitter, on Facebook, and Instagram. You can also write with others by joining in on our live streams! We’ll be going live every day on Instagram and/or YouTube.

The best way to stay in the loop is by bookmarking this page!

Other information:

  • If you haven't yet, accept the Camp NaNoWriMo challenge from your Dashboard to write with us during April.

  • Want to start something earlier? Create a Personal Challenge from your Dashboard to set your own timeline and goals. This feature is available year-round!

  • Are you a teacher or parent? Start a Classroom Challenge from the Challenges area of your Classroom. You set the timeline and structure, and we'll send the invite out to all your students.
