Can I change my username?

On NaNoWriMo

Users can now change their usernames on the site! To do so:

  1. On nanowrimo.org, go to the My NaNoWriMo menu, then click "Account Settings."  
  2. At the top of the Account Settings page, you'll see your current username in an editable text field. Change that to your preferred username.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save." (Be aware that some browsers may autofill a password! You'll want to clear those before saving.)

On Camp NaNoWriMo


Unfortunately, Camp NaNoWriMo usernames cannot be changed and any change on NaNoWriMo.org cannot currently be reflected on the Campsite.
