Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo

This summer, Lexington County Public Library encourages you to not only Imagine Your Story — but to tell it.

Go camping in the comfort of your own home with Camp NaNoWriMo this July. This summer version of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) allows users to choose their goals for how they spend their time and utilize their creativity. Perhaps that goal is to write a certain amount of words, or to spend an hour a day writing. Campers don’t even have to write a novel; it can be anything. Short stories, plays, poetry, scripts, fanfiction, nonfiction and comics are highly encouraged. The only common goal for every camper is to write.
