While the next NaNoWriMo doesn't start until November, you can participate in Camp NaNoWriMo, which happens in April and July.

What is Camp NaNoWriMo?

"This month-long writing challenge takes place every April and July and offers you the flexibility to try something new with your writing. The key differences between Camp NaNoWriMo and our November writing challenge are that during Camp, you can set your own word-count goal (you’re not locked into 50,000 words!), and you can officially tackle any kind of writing project, novel or not." -- from the Camp NaNoWriMo website.  

What is NaNoWriMo?

Founded in 1999, this month-long novel writing event takes place online and on the laptops, computers, and even notebooks millions of people worldwide and encourages people everywhere and of all ages to be creative. The goal of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, is to write 50,000 words of a first-draft novel every November. For more information on this amazing event, visit their website at  (from "About NaNoWriMo").

Who can participate in NaNoWriMo or Camp NaNoWriMo?

Anyone of any age!
