Transcript of Introduction to NANOWRIMO

NANOWRIMO is an international, friendly competition to write 50,000 words in 30 days.

Participants can be found all around the world and even in our own back yard!

Since it's creation, the region of Lewis County has had over 200 writers.
NANOWRIMO was founded by a company called The Offices of Letters and Light in 1999. They have since changed their name to NANOWRIMO.

They are a non profit company who employs nine full-time employees, houses files full of local writers’ novel excerpts, and proudly displays an oil painting of Tom Selleck.
