CONCORD – Have you ever wanted to write a novel? Well, now is the time, as November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! The goal of NaNoWriMo is for budding novelists to write 50,000 words by November 30. To facilitate this process, the Concord Free Public Library will hold four in-person writing events (write-ins) during the month of November.
The Main Library invites you to stop by the library during the following dates/times for a quiet place to write and enjoy a snack:
Main Library (129 Main St., Concord, MA) – November 17 & November 24, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The library is partnering with NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison Kyra Wilson Cook, who will provide in-person support at the write-ins. Kyra Wilson Cook is a former middle-school history teacher who fully embraced her desire to write fiction after her children were born. She enjoys writing stories that explore the thin veil between this world and the unknown beyond. A NaNoWriMo participant since 2010, Kyra has been mentoring participants, particularly mothers, for the last 8 years. She has self-published two novellas that were started as NaNo projects: The Patron of the Meadowlark Inn and Hewitt & Sons. Kyra writes for local businesses and blogs about suburban motherhood.
