November is National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. Every year, writers everywhere join together for support, encouragement and motivation as they attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days. You can sign up for the challenge at nanowrimo.org, but only in Portsmouth can you find in-person connection, snacks and space to write all month, free pizza, and an open mic night, thanks to the library! PPL will host 6 events this year:
