NaNoWriMo Writers Space event

NaNoWriMo Writers Space

Join fellow writers and readers at the American Writers Museum to swap ideas, share tips, give feedback and finish your #NaNoWriMo novel! Coffee, tea, and opportunities for collaboration will be available.

November is National Novel Writing Month, better known as NaNoWriMo, and we want to help you get across the finish line! On November 27, we’re hosting our first ever NaNoWriMo Writers Space. Spend a day at the Museum with fellow writers and find inspiration for your novel from the American masters of the craft including:

  • Jack Kerouac, who wrote On the Road in three weeks on one long typewritten scroll.
  • Dorothy Parker, who once telegraphed her editor, “I SIMPLY CANNOT GET THE THING DONE PAPER COVERED WITH WRONG WORDS.”
  • Ernest Hemingway, who psyched himself up with the mantra, “Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now.”
  • Ray Bradbury, who had a sign above his typewriter that read, “DON’T THINK.”

Gather with a community of your fellow writers in our Readers Hall, where we’ll be providing paper, pencils, typewriters, and complimentary coffee and tea as you work to get your NaNoWriMo to that magical 50,000th word!

Advance registration is recommended but not required, walk-ins are welcome. Access to all AWM exhibits included with event registration, including our new special exhibit Dark Testament: A Century of Black Writers on Justice.

The event is finished.
