Kick-Off Party

NaNoWriMo Kick-Off Party

October 31 10:30 p.m. -  November 1st 2:00 a.m.

You can't start writing your novel until November 1st, but you can go to the Kick-Off party and start right at midnight with a whole group of other writers. It's a late night gathering where aspiring novelists can learn more about NaNoWriMo while getting tools for success and treats for fun! There will be games, challenges, activities, and writing! Ready to be sorted into one of the three Seattle teams? Which one will you be in? Costumes encouraged, but not required!

Writers need fuel to produce words, so this year we're having a mug exchange. Bring a mug to participate in the mug exchange!
