Camp NanNoWriMo

Do You Have What It Takes To Attend Camp NaNoWriMo?


So your probably saying to yourself “What the hell is NaNoWriMo?”. To be specific it stands for National Novel Writing Month.

“National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. 

On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.” 


But NaNoWriMo is so much more than just a writing competition in November each year! They also are a 501C non-profit “that believes your story matters.”  Here is their mission statement from their website:

“Our Mission Statement

National Novel Writing Month believes in the transformational power of creativity. We provide the structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds—on and off the page.”


So what is this Camp I’m talking about, well each year in April and July NaNoWriMo holds a virtual writing retreat online for writers of all ages. They call it ” An idyllic writers retreat, smack-dab in the middle of your crazy life”. Here is an excerpt from

Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writer’s retreat, designed for maximum flexibility and creativity. 

We have Camp sessions in both April and July, and we welcome word-count goals between 30 and 1,000,000. In addition, writers can tackle any project they’d like, including new novel drafts, revision, poetry, scripts, and short stories.
