NaNoWriMo 2017 at UC Berkeley: Come Write In Sessions

Meeting | November 19 | 1-3 p.m. | Doe Library, Room 180 Doe Library

 Shannon Monroe, Head of Interlibrary Lending & Photoduplication, Interlibrary Services


Have you ever thought about writing a novel, but just didn’t think you had the time? You’re not alone. A small group of friends from the East Bay dared themselves to finish their novels in 30 days back in 1999; creating the foundation of what has become National Novel Writing Month. Since then, this small non-profit,, has become a global event of epic proportions! 50,000 words in 30 days! Quantity over quality is the name of the game. Turn off your inner editor and win.

Are you working on a thesis, dissertation, or any other writing project (creative or otherwise), but could use a bit of support from the collective energy of fellow students or colleagues to help you stay focused and provide some inspiration? NaNoWriMo isn’t just for novels anymore – be a NaNoWriMo “Rebel”, and work on your academic projects, an article, a chapter, final research paper, memoir, screenplay, etc., and possibly find some new writing buddies along the way!

To join us, sign up at and join the East Bay Home Region to see the calendar of events in our area and beyond. You can also email me anytime with questions.
