NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program
Our Young Writers Program is a version of NaNoWriMo designed specifically for kids and teens. Participants 17 and under set individual word-count goals, and we support them through an engaging, youth-oriented site and plenty of noveling resources.
The YWP also provides free educator resources—including curricula, workbooks, and a classroom kit—for teaching NaNoWriMo in schools, libraries, and community centers.
After NaNoWriMo, YWP participants and educators report positive results in writers’ self-confidence, creative writing skills, overall writing skills, and time management.
In 2012, the Young Writers Program will support about 2,000 classrooms and 60,000 self-directed novelists participating worldwide.
