National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is celebrated every November and encourages writers of all ages to pledge to write 50,000 words, or a novel, in one month. In the spirit of encouraging creative writing, White Plains Public Library will present a series of virtual creative writing sessions for children grades 4-8 at 4 p.m on Wednesdays November 4th, 18th and 25th.
Instead of focusing on a specific word count, or finishing an entire novel, we will dive into the structure of stories, have fun with fanfiction, discuss personal experience with NaNoWriMo and provide free writing time using fun prompts as a guideline. If you have been curious about creative writing or simply want a way to express yourself, these workshops will help you engage within a virtual community to share your stories and creativity. We will create a fun and safe environment to help silence the inner critic and awaken the writer within you. Bring along a snack and be prepared to open up your imagination.
