    Come join the Ottawa Municipal Liaisons of NaNoWriMo for a few hours of writing and chatting during Camp NaNoWriMo!

    Camp NaNoWriMo is your next, great writing adventure! 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, and you can officially tackle any kind of writing project, novel or not.
