  • Off the Beaten Path Bookstore, 68 Ninth St.

Campout inside Off the Beaten Bath Bookstore for a late-night Write-in!

Camp NaNoWriMo participants are encouraged to camp out after-hours at Off the Beaten Path. Spend the evening in the bookstore loft, writing and exchanging ideas with your fellow creatives. With plug-ins and plenty of space, this is your time to write together and share ideas, breakthroughs, frustration and giggles. Plus, you can enjoy coffee, beer and snacks from the Off the Beaten Path Cafe!

What is Camp NaNoWriMo?
In November, the Library sponsors National Novel Writer’s Month (a.k.a. NaNoWriMo), which focuses in on churning out a 50,000-word novel. Camp NaNoWriMo is a more casual virtual writer’s retreat designed for summer, giving you maximum flexibility and creativity. Set your own word-count goals between 30 and 1,000,000 words, then tackle any project you’d like to camp out and pursue for the entire month of July. Start a new novel or tackle a revision. Write poetry, essays, personal genealogy tales, memoir, scripts or short stories. Let your creative writing juices run wild at Camp NaNoWriMo!
