How can educators and students participate in Camp NaNoWriMo?

Currently, we are working on making the YWP site run year-round! In the meantime, educators and students age 13 and older can create accounts on the Camp NaNoWriMo site. Camp works with any type of writing project, including novels, essays, revisions, poetry, and more. Participants can set their own goal of words, lines, pages, or hours.

While the Campsite does not have classrooms, participants can create private virtual message boards called cabins and invite up to 19 other writers to join. Find out more about cabins here.

Keep in mind that participants do not write their novels directly on the Campsite—students will have to save and back up their projects elsewhere!

Note: You must be 13 years or older to create an account on Camp NaNoWriMo.
