NaNoWriMo

Always wanted to write a novel, but found yourself overthinking things? National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is the cure for that. Over the course of November participants endeavour to write 50,000 words - starting on the 1st and ending at 11:59 on the 30th. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel. This year the SWG is partnering with NaNoWriMo's Regina region to help enhance this month long writing event. Register free at Nanowrimo.org, join your region's forum to learn about events, and get ready to start writing!

For the Regina region, each Tuesday of November from 6:30pm-8:30pm we will be hosting write-ins at our SWG Regina office. This is an opportunity for Regina participants to get together, vent about their plots, and get some writing done. During these write-ins we'll provide snacks and a guest author who will come in and do a 15-20 minute presentation on an aspect of novel writing. The author will stay for the remainder of the write-in to provide help and answer any questions - and maybe get some writing of their own done!

Here’s what our NaNoWriMo looks like at a glance

After November we will allow each Regina participant to book an hour with professional editor, Ed Willett, to review their work and provide advice. Participants can submit their work in advance, and be provided with consultation for an hour in order to be one step closer to publishing the novel they spent the month slaving away at.

Please contact the SWG program assistant, Caelan Reilly, at 306-791-7746 or at swgevents@skwriter.com or contact the Nanowrimo Regina Liaison, Darcy Summers, at grlgoddess.101@gmail.com.
