National Novel Writing Month's Young Writers Program
November is National Novel Writing Month! The annual NaNoWriMo event encourages writers everywhere to start and complete an entire novel in 30 days. And it isn't just for adults—since 2005, writers 17 and under have penned their own works through NaNoWriMo's Young Writers Program. Participants in the YWP have more flexibility with their goals and can set individual word-count targets. The program also provides valuable support for students on its Web site, including advice from best-selling authors, forums to chat with other writers, and workbooks to guide the novelist-in-progress. Educators can also sign their classrooms up for the challenge, using the YWP's online lesson plans and classroom kits.
In 2012, it is projected that more than 60,000 people will participate in the event worldwide. Your donations will help the YWP reach even more budding writers!
