This month UCF Libraries is hosting National Novel Writing Month events. National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, is a month-long writing challenge that began in 1999 and the goal of the challenge is to write 50,000 words by the end of November. NaNoWriMo is all inclusive, meaning that it’s open to anyone who wants to write a novel – including you.
On Wednesday November 20th stop by Room 223 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm for an author rights workshop with our scholarly communications librarian Sarah Norris. This workshop will provide you with some of the tools you need to understand and maintain your rights as they relate to you and your written work. You’ll also be able to learn more about copyright and licensing related to publishing and author resources.
Computer labs 235A and 235C will be open to writers for general use on Saturday November 9th, 16th, and 23rd from 9am to 7pm. If you are looking for a quieter space to crank out some words, stop by room 511 on November 9th between 10am and 2pm, or November 16th and 23rd between 2pm and 5pm. You can find more information and resources on our NaNoWriMo LibGuide.
Keep an eye out on our social media for more NaNoWriMo events and write-ins. Good Luck and write on!
