Camp NaNoWriMo in April and July!

NaNoWriMo Profile Photo

Spring is on it's way, and so is Camp NaNoWriMo!

Camp NaNoWriMo is 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.

Accept the Camp challenge from your Dashboard starting March 1 to plan your next project, then start writing April 1. 

Check out all the Camp NaNoWriMo resources!
