November @yourlibrary!

November is National Novel Writing Month! For veterans of the craft and newcomers alike, it is an exciting time for writers looking to translate all of the amazing ideas in their heads to words on the page.
Pelham Public Library is proud to host its first National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) program this November in sponsorship and celebration of local writers. The library will be holding a series of events in which local writers can come together, write, share ideas and read aloud from their own work.

NaNoWriMo Kick-Off  (Sat Nov 1, 12:00-2:00pm)
Writers can come, meet and mingle, share their ideas or works in progress and take the opportunity to begin their first words toward their NaNoWriMo 2014 goal.NaNo Nights (Thurs Nov 6, 13 & 20, 6:00-8:00pm)
The library will offer writing prompts and the opportunity for writers to “Read Out!” sections of their work. Writers can also simply come and be with other writers while they work toward their word-count goals. We aim to create an encouraging space where writers can come together and feed off the creative energies of other writers and actually get some words on the page! (No meeting on Thanksgiving.)‘TGIO!’ Wrap Party (Saturday December 6, 12:00-2:00pm)
“TGIO” stands for ‘thank goodness it’s over’ – which is exactly how writers will feel after a month-long writing blitz (along with an enormous sense of satisfaction, of course!). Writers can share successes, commiserate over setbacks, and generally celebrate the massive achievement of “surviving NaNoWriMo.” It is set to correspond with the final day of New Hampshire Writers Week (Nov 30 – Dec 6).
