National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is celebrating its 18th year of encouraging writers from elementary school through adults to put their thoughts and words to paper. NaNoWriMo challenges people to write 50,000 words of a novel in the 30 days of November.
This year, NaNoWriMo expects 500,000 participants from over 600 affiliated chapters across six continents.
In support of writers who want to accept this challenge Come Write In sessions are established in libraries, bookstores and other neighborhood spaces. Writers attend Come Write In sessions to write quietly, or not, with other writers, sharing encouragement and support for one another.
The Lake Wales Public Library will host two Come Write In sessions. The first session will begin at 10 a.m., Monday, November 7. The second session begins at 3 p.m., Tuesday, November 22. Both Come Write In sessions will be held in the Library’s Schoenoff Meeting Room.

The Lake Wales Public Library’s Come Write In sessions will be facilitated by Paul Warternberg. Paul is Bartow Public Library’s Reference Librarian. Please direct questions to him by calling 534.0131 or email [email protected]
