Prepare for NaNoWriMo with our FREE Program!

Katrina Kittle
Think you can write a novel in a month? 

NaNoWriMo thinks you can! NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, which is held November of every year, and was started by the NaNoWriMo organization. The challenge is to write a decent 50,000 word draft in just one month. Later, revise, refine, and edit your work into a polished novel. Many published novelists have started in just this way!

Still, writing a novel--even a beginning draft--in just one month seems daunting to most writers.

AWW is here to help. Our first FREE Writer's Mini-Workshop will feature author Katrina Kittle and give you the steps and tools to prepare for getting the most our of NaNoWriMo.

Join Katrina, author of award-winning novels such as "The Blessings of the Animals" and "The Kindness of Strangers" on October 12, 2:00 p.m., at Books & Co. at The Greene in Beavercreek, Ohio. She'll lead our session, "NaNoWriMo Primer."
