The Write Club – National Novel Writing Month at School

Participant-2014-NaNoWriMoNovember is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)

The goal is to write an entire novel in the course of 30 days. It’s a tough challenge that I have only participated in one year. I was able to win it though by completing my 50,000 word novel on time. It was quite the accomplishment and a lot of fun.

This year, I want to try something new. I have started “The Write Club” at my school. I have booked the computer lab during the first nutrition break every single day throughout the month. I have also booked it for an hour after school Tuesday – Thursday.

I have 30 students who have signed up for the challenge. I will be assisting them as a writing coach so I’m not sure I will have the chance to write as well. Hopefully, I will.

If this is something you’d like to try at your school, sign up as an educator in The Young Writer’s Program. 

There are great resources, including lesson plans, student workbooks, incentive prizes, and forums.

Why not start a writing club at your school?

If your classroom is participating in NaNoWriMo, I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment below.
