Do you hear voices in your head? Maybe you have a novel inside you! November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a time when writers around the world challenge themselves to write an entire novel in just one month, the perfect time to bring those characters to life. The Upland Public Library and the NaNoWriMo Pomona Valley Region welcome writers of all ages to the NaNoWriMo Kick-Off on Saturday, October 26th, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., in the Library’s Multipurpose Room. Enjoy meeting and sharing tips with the Pomona Valley Region Municipal Liaisons and other local writers at the NaNoWriMo Kick-Off.
Writing doesn't have to be a solitary pursuit! Upland Public Library is hosting dedicated space for our local writers’ efforts during “Come Write In!” (CWI) sessions on Saturday afternoons, 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., on November 9th and 16th. “Come Write In!” is a free, drop-in program for would-be writers of all ages. Bring a notebook or a laptop and join other local writers to write communally. The Upland Public Library is located at 450 N. Euclid Avenue and provides free wi-fi for valid card holders. Thanks to the Friends of the Upland Public Library for providing writing fuel in the form of hot beverages and refreshments during the “Come Write In!” sessions. Outside the scheduled “Come Write In!” sessions, aspiring “WriMos” are also invited to find an empty seat at a table or study carrel in the Library’s main reading room.
Visit the NaNoWriMo.org website to register as a NaNoWriMo participant, to find more tips, and to interact on the various board forums. Now three years old, the NaNoWriMo Pomona Valley Region is shaped somewhat like a T-bone steak, with the 210, 15, and 71 highways running just inside its borders. At the crossroads of three counties, the region includes writers from Upland and San Antonio Heights down to Corona, and from San Dimas and Diamond Bar to Fontana. About 250 of the 320 writers who have associated themselves with the NaNoWriMo Pomona Valley Region have designated Pomona Valley as their home region.
