This year, seven locations will be hosting Write-In programs. We’ll have space for you to work, coffee and snacks to keep you going, and most importantly, the support of your fellow writers.

In case you missed it, Kelly’s NaNoWriMo post from last year has some great resources for writing a novel in a short amount of time. You can also check out these books for even more inspiration.

Beyond these best-sellers, there are many, many more books, across all genres, that also started as WriMo projects and made it publication. Hopefully, these write-in workshops will help a few budding novelists reach that goal!
