NaNoWriMo Gets Underway at the HWC

The nanowrimo logoNational Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) is an annual event that encourages writers to craft 1,500 words per day throughout the month of November, making a total of 50,000 words by month's end. 

The Howe Writing Center (HWC) will be supporting writers at Miami as they pursue their NaNoWriMo goals with prizes at four different word-count milestones:

  • 5,000 words: snack bag
  • 15,000 words: HWC mug with goodies
  • 30,000 words: Moleskine journal
  • 50,000 words: $50 gift card

How to participate:

  1. Sign up for an account on the NaNoWriMo website and log your progress there, or keep track of your word count on your own. 
  2. To claim your prize at each milestone, come to the HCWE reception desk in King Library and share proof of your word count with a member of the Support Staff.

With your permission, we will also take a photo of you and your prize to share on social media. So, good luck and happy writing! We'll be seeing you around the HWC.

As a reminder, the HWC is located in King Library, straight ahead from the main entrance. We're Open Monday–Thursday 10:00AM–9:00PM, Friday 10:00AM–5:00PM, and Sunday 10:00AM-9:00 PM.
