Welcome to NaNoWriMo, writer! We are so excited to create with you.
Announce a Project
First, you'll want to announce a new project! You can do this two ways. You can click on the button to Start New Project on your Dashboard, or you can go to "My NaNoWriMo" → "Projects", then select, "Announce New Project".
- Join a region to find local events. Find your region here, then join it to get updates from your local Municipal Liaison (a volunteer who manages the region)! Once you join, say hello to your ML.
- Browse and RSVP to upcoming virtual events hosted by NaNo HQ! Get to know the community with events that include writer yoga, author webcasts, and community meetups (including ones just for LGBTQIA+ writers and Writers of Color).
- Say hello in the forums, and find support and resources. If you're just getting started, check out the Newbies forum, the Coffeehouse, and the Reference Desk forums.
