Tweet Chat: Meet Your April Camp Counselors!

Camp NaNoWriMoMonday, April 3, 2017
10:00-11:00 AM PST

Each Camp session, we’re joined by published authors who act as “counselors” on our blog. This April, they’ll be dispensing words of wisdom, advice, and encouragement to all our NaNo Campers. Kick off the start of this new Camp season by joining a few of our Counselors for a Tweet Chat on Monday, April 3, at 10 am Pacific Time, with the hashtag #WNDBNaNo (In partnership with We Need Diverse Books). Visit our Writing Resources page for more information about your Camp Counselors.


Virtual Write-Ins

Can’t make it to an in-person write-in? Join us at a virtual one, streamed live from NaNoWriMo HQ. After all, writing is that much easier in the company of writers from around the world!

What happens at a VWI?

  • We write together!
  • We challenge each other to word sprints.
  • We offer suggested prompts to help you find inspiration.

See all our scheduled Virtual Write-Ins on YouTube.

NaNo Word Sprints

Word sprintsWhat’s a word sprint? It’s a timed writing exercise to write as quickly as you can for a set amount of time. You can take on a suggested prompt or dare, too!

Why take part in a word sprint? To rev up your writing momentum, and get you sprinting past your inner editor.

Tackle a word sprint with our new word-sprint tool!

NaNo Coaches

Every week of November, a published author will take over our official Twitter account, @NaNoWriMo, to answer your questions and coach you through drafting your novel.

All tweets that come from our NaNo Coaches will be signed with the hashtag #NaNoCoach. If you want to make sure your question or thoughts make their way to your coach’s clipboard, please include #NaNoCoach in your tweet, too!
