National Novel Writing Month Kick-Off
Nov 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Every November thousands of people across the world challenge themselves to write a 50,000 word book in just 30 days. This year, the Escanaba Public Library invites the public to dust off that book idea they’ve had and join them as they celebrate National Novel Writing Month with a series of events that will empower and help writers in the area.

On November 1 at 7:00 p.m. the Escanaba Public Library will be hosting a kick-off party, where those interested in the NaNoWriMo can come with their laptops or notebooks and begin their writing journey with the support of other writers. Bay College Writing Instructor Nanci Love will be on hand to help writers with their problems and the library will have a collection of books, worksheets, and cheat sheets for authors to use.
