Come Write In

NaNoWriMo’s Come Write In (CWI) program connects libraries, bookstores, and other neighborhood spaces with their local NaNoWriMo participants (or Wrimos) to build vibrant writing communities.

Every November, thousands of writers around the world congregate at Come Write In spaces to pursue their creative dreams and write the first draft of their novel.

For CWI Locations

Do you have a lovely library or eclectic community space ready to welcome writers this November? Do you want to start a club at your college or university?

Great! We’d love to have you.

What You Get as an Official Come Write In Location

A Come Write In kit. For the cost of shipping, we’ll send you a poster, a window cling, and some bookmarks to help spread the word about the events you’re hosting during NaNoWriMo.

The Come Write In forum. Network and chat with other libraries, bookstores, and community centers that are hosting events.

Local volunteers. If you’re interested, we’ll connect you with any Municipal Liaisons in your area: they can help you spread the word about your events, co-host your events, and keep you in the loop regarding your region’s creative goings-on.
