Many of us are aware of (and perhaps participating in) NaNoWriMo, e.g. National Novel Writing Month. You can find that website at http://nanowrimo.org/.
But did you know there are November challenge-themed resources for poets and creative nonfiction writers, too?
Thank you to our lovely friend JoAnn Anglin for forwarding these two resources:
For poets, there’s the November PAD (Poem-A-Day) Chapbook Challenge. You can find daily prompts here: http://www.writersdigest.com/
Nonfiction writers have an option to with Write Nonfiction NOW!: http://writenonfictionnow.com/
And here in town, I’m facilitating what I hope is the first of an annual fall November-writing-adventure workshop for all genres–and wow, are we having an amazing time! We are going deep into our individual writing processes to challenge ourselves. As we do so, we learn surprising strategies and lessons–and we’re sharing these with each other. I can’t wait to see the fruits of our labors, which we’ll share in workshop format in December.
