It's NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and BARN's Writers Studio is hosting regular free write-ins so we can cheer each other on and keep the fires of inspiration burning. Join by Zoom or in the studio.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of writers attempt a great adventure during November. These aspiring novelists and other writers race to put down 50,000 words in just 30 days.

NaNoWriMo has helped kick off the drafting of many published novels like "The Night Circus," "Wool," "Water for Elephants," "Cinder," and "The Wedding Date." Although originally intended for novel writers, the event has expanded and you can work on whatever writing project you want to commit to for November.
