Students are sought for a new fall class at Casper College: “NaNoWriMo,” ENGL 2490.

“NaNoWriMo,” short for National Novel Writing Month, will challenge students to write 50,000 words in 30 days. According to Jill Hughes, English instructor, the first two months of the class will be used to prepare for November’s NaNoWriMo challenge.

The first two months of the class will focus on “ … coming up with ideas, preparing for high-velocity writing, and assembling writing survival kits,” Hughes said. The goal for November will be to write a 50,000-word novel. “This is a challenging but doable goal, even for people with busy lives and no novel-writing experience,” noted Hughes.

At the end of the course, students will celebrate their writing and “… look towards what the next steps are when they have their novel’s first draft completed,” said Hughes.

The two-credit class will meet weekly on Tuesdays beginning August 20 from 6-7:50 p.m. To register or for more information contact Hughes at 307-268-2383 or
