Come Write In at Cranston Public Library

"Come Write In" at Cranston Public Library During National Novel Writing Month

This November, the Cranston Public Library will participate in National Novel Writing Month as a "Come Write In" partner, hosting a series of write in events and workshops for writers of all ages.

Each year, during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), aspiring writers take the challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel in just four short weeks. The challenge began in 1999 and, today, engages more than 300,000 writers of all ages with the National Novel Writing Month challenge and the Young Writers Program. The "Come Write In" program connects libraries, bookstores, coffee shops, and other neighborhood locations with their local NaNoWriMo participants. "Come Write In" partners host write in events, providing resources to participants, as well as space to come together as a writing community. 

Adults and teens are invited to attend write in events at the Central Library, the William Hall Library, and the Auburn Branch, where library locations will provide writers with reference materials, writing exercises and a quiet space to boost creativity and focus. Scheduled events will take place as follows:

Monday, Nov 2 | 5:30 PM - 7:45 PM @ the Central Library

Saturday, Nov 7 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ the Auburn Branch

Monday, Nov 9 | 5:30 PM - 7:45 PM @ the William Hall Library

Saturday, Nov 14 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ the Auburn Branch

Saturday, Nov 21 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ the Auburn Branch

Saturday, Nov 28 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ the Auburn Branch

Monday, Nov 30 | 5:30 PM - 7:45 PM @ the Central Library

Young writers are invited to participate in the NaNoWriMo Writing Workshop for Kids taking place on Mondays in November at the Central Library. This program aligns with NaNoWriMo's Young Writers program, which helps young writers gain writing confidence while setting personalized word count goals.
