Come Write In: Libraries
Come Write In, a NaNoWriMo initiative that encourages Wrimos to write in libraries during the month of November, is looking for participants!
What does this mean for you? Well, if you’re a Wrimo it means you’ll have a cozy library in your neighborhood where you can write your NaNo masterpiece! If you’re a library staff member, you’ll be able to welcome a whole bunch of avid readers and writers into your library.
Library staff can check out The Library Outreach Guide (or download a PDF). This will give you all of the details about the program. In a nutshell, you’ll need to provide a space with a large table or desks, where Wrimos can come in during the month of November and work. You’ll also need to have lots of outlets so that everyone can plug in their laptops! You can set aside a space as frequently as you like during the month–every week or just once or twice–whatever works best for you!
If you’d like to participate in Come Write In 2012, great! We’d love to have you. Fill out this form to be added to our mailing list and our list of participating libraries, and you’ll be the first to know when our 2012 library kits are available for order!
Important note: if you filled out this form between August 20 and September 5, we didn’t receive it thanks to a glitch in our site! Please fill the form out again so we can be sure you’re on the list. Thank you!
Check out a previous year’s library kit for a taste of what awaits you in this bundle of goodies.
If you represent a school library, or want to facilitate NaNoWriMo with young participants at your local library, check out the Young Writers Program! Sign up as an educator to receive information on ordering a free classroom kit (featuring a progress chart, stickers, and buttons).
Your region may have a Municipal Liaison, a volunteer dedicated to organizing events in your area and monitoring your regional forum. To find out if there’s a Municipal Liaison (ML) near you, see the list here. They’ll appreciate hearing from you, and it may be the beginning of a mutually beneficial partnership. As partners, you might coordinate events, share write-in space, and/or have your events listed on your region’s official calendar.
