The Silver City Public Library will be hosting two “write-ins” for National Novel Writing Month participants this November. They will be on Tuesday, November 17, 4:00-6:00pm, and Monday, November 30, 3:00-6:00pm. During National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, writers worldwide challenge themselves to complete a 50,000-word first-draft novel. Participants can get support and learn more on the organization’s website, nanowrimo.org. In November 2014, 325,142 writers took on the NaNoWriMo challenge. Of those participants, 58,917 writers successfully completed a 50,000-word draft of a novel.

Writers ranging in age from high school through adulthood are invited to attend the write-ins at the library. Participants can bring laptops to work on their drafts, while sharing ideas and moral support. There will be food and drink available, and participants are welcome to bring a snack to share. Budding novelists will also have access to the library’s open wifi network.

The Southwest Festival of the Written Word is also sponsoring the NaNoWriMo write-ins. “The Festival and the library are always eager to support local writers,” said Lillian Galloway, programming and outreach librarian. “To that end, both of our organizations also sponsor Gilawriters, a writing group that meets at the library every Tuesday, 2:00-4:00pm.” For more information about Gilawriters, contact Trish Heck at 575-534-0207. For more information about the library’s NaNoWriMo write-ins, contact Lillian Galloway at 575-538-3672 or ref@silvercitymail.com. The Silver City Public Library is located at 515 W. College Avenue and is open Monday-Thursday 9:00am-6:00pm, Friday 10:00am-5:00pm, and Saturday 10:00am-2:00pm.
