What does the Program Include?
The program comes with a wealth of benefits and resources. There are workbooks (for download and purchase) aimed at varying grade levels filled with inspiration starters, writing prompts and story building tools. Just like with the vanilla NaNo program there are also pep-talks from other authors providing advice, words of wisdom and uplifting support. And of course I can't forget their friendly and supportive community! The writers who participate in NaNoWriMo are some of the most supportive people I have ever come in contact with. Their forums, twitter and live-streams have kept me company many late nights and given me that last push I needed to cross the hurdles before me.
Here's How to Sign-up
Anyone can sign-up for NaNoWriMo, and if you're a youngster or an educator who wants to incorporate this event into your classroom, they have you covered. There is a step-by-step guide on registering a young writer and how to set a customizable word count goal for maximum chances of achievement.
Here's How to Donate
The month the YWP is raising funds to upgrade their website. Their goal is 50k and so far they have raised 32k. They are only running this drive until June 23rd so help support the writers of tomorrow and pledge whatever you can.
If you are unable to donate, help spread the word about the donation drive instead via social media and using #ToAFutureWriter.
