National Novel Writing Month

November is the National Novel Writing Month. Patsy and I had the opportunity to research famous women writers for the Women’s Center bulletin board on the first floor of Haag Hall. We came across some inspiring women for the board such as Alice Walker, Harper Lee, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Margaret Mitchell, Joy Kogawa, and Erica Jong. These women have been the inspiration for many young writers today. Their works reflect on religion, education, culture, and history. Furthermore, through their short stories, poetry, and essays, they have given women encouragement to freely express their hopes, dreams, and desires through writing.

Every year, the National Novel Writing Committee challenges young writers to write for the entire month of November. The challenge is to write 50,000 words or more during the month of November. So if you are interested in writing, don’t hesitate to get involved in the writing extravaganza. For more information you can visit the National Novel Writing Month website: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/whatisnano.
