What is National Novel Writing Month? NaNoWriMo is an effort to encourage people to work on that novel they've always intended to write "someday"--TODAY!
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.
Throughout November, aspiring authors work on their novels with encouragement from authors and other writers, and keep track of their word counts on the NaNoWriMo website.
Is this the year you take on National Novel Writing Month? Maybe you only have an idea for a story. Perhaps you're working on your 10th novel. We don't care if you just started writing or just finished the thing, we want your first page! Submit it (and nothing else) for a chance to win prizes and have it aired on our Page One radio program!
"One Page" = approx. 300 - 500 words
Original works written by locals
All ages and topics welcome

Four winning pages will be selected by mid-December
Winners will be aired on KSUT & KDUR in January 2023
