NaNoWriMo's Young Writers Program
Have a child (K-12) looking to take part in the NaNoWriMo challenge? NaNoWriMo's The Young Writers Program (YWP) of NaNoWriMo is an accessible and interactive way for young writers to express themselves and be creative.
Let your imagination take hold as you participate in this exciting challenge, along with young writers from other Palm Beach County schools. The goal is to draft an entire novel in one month. Whether it be 1,000 words per day or 100,000 words for the month, it’s up to you.
Inspirational resources, progress-tracking tools and a workbook space are available on the NaNoWriMo Young Writers website, https://ywp.nanowrimo.org.
