Can I use the NaNoWriMo name or logo?

We claim intellectual property of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, and our logo. You may use them if:
  • You do so as a fan of our programs (e.g., for an online writing group), not a representative.

  • You do not use them as part of a paid product or service, or otherwise present us as endorsing a paid product or service.

  • You understand the right of National Novel Writing Month to determine reasonable use of our names and logo, and will follow any requests to remove or modify.
You can find small and large versions of our logo here. 

*You may not use our name or logo on any merchandise that is for sale.

Let us know if you have a special situation or proposal not covered by the permissions above, or report a potential trademark issue.
