Camp Nanowrimo

Camp NaNoWriMo Logo
Get Lost. Write.
This July, Camp NaNoWriMo challenges you to "Get Lost. Write."
So you can explore uninhibitedly and be the cartographer of imagined lands, we used our (considerable) physiography skills to create your very own Map to the Month… or, everything you’ll need to find your story over the next 31 days.

The time to commit is now!
1. Commit to your July writing project by creating it here. (Then, visit our blog for some last-minute inspiration. And if you’re not in a cabin yet, jump on in! Your crew awaits!)

At midnight in your time zone, start writing! After a sweat-inducing hike across the page, make your first word-count update (from the top of our site or through "My Writing Projects").
Join interns and staff for our first Virtual Write-In, an inspiration-kindling video live-stream. We’ll be online with you every Tuesday at 11 AM PDT and every Wednesday at 2 PM PDT.
