Presented September 5, 2017
NaNoWriMo is a free, largely online challenge posed to writers around the world each November: complete a 50,000 word draft of a novel in 30 days. Emily Hollingshead, of Drumheller Public Library and a NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison for the Alberta : Elsewhere region (everywhere but Edmonton, Calgary, and Lethbridge), will show you how to capitalise on this great program to provide low cost, low prep programming that will help you reach and serve a creative and passionate segment of your local community. Emily will share more about NaNoWriMo, how other Alberta libraries have used it in past years, and where to get resources to make this one of the easiest programs you’ll run all year!
