All of November!
Join us in the Teen Room all month for writing prompts and writing activities meant to jump start your inspiration and your stories!

It's a fun, seat-of-your-pants writing event where the challenge is to draft an entire novel in just 30 days. For one month, you get to lock away your inner editor, let your imagination take over, and just create! The Young Writers Program supports K-12 students and educators, as well as independent young writers, as they take part in the challenge. See Rebecca to talk about NaNoWriMo, writing activities, or how you can jump start a writing idea that you have been mulling over!
