National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On Nov. 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.
This year the SWG is again partnering with NaNoWriMo Regina region and the Regina Public Library to help enhance this month-long writing event.

Novel Month Workshop: In for the Long Haul
November is National Writing Month. Here’s a secret: you can’t really write a novel in a month. (Well, Maybe James Pattersson can.) But you can get a good start. Guild member Dave Margoshes, who’s published several novels, will provide some tips on how to get going and stay on course in this one-hour workshop.
Dave Margoshes is a poet and fiction writer who’s been active in the Saskatchewan writing community for over 30 years. He’s appeared six times in Best Canadian Stories and been a Journey Prize finalist. Among his many books are Bix’s Trumpet and Other Stories, which was a Saskatchewan Book Awards Book of the Year, and A Book of Great Worth, named one of Amazon.ca’s top hundred books for 2012. He’s taught creative writing and led workshops at various locations, and for various age groups.
