During National Novel Writing Month, many people dedicate themselves to writing at least 50,000 words in a month (Mesa County Public Library is hosting a few NaNoWriMo meetups in November). Many other fiction writers, poets, and creative non-fiction writers maintain a writing practice year round. Still others would like to write, but don’t know how to get started.
If you would like to write, find yourself stuck in your writing, need help in the submission process, or just crave some inspiration, visit our Resources for Writers subject guide. There you will find links to information about the writing process, about formatting your manuscript, querying potential publishers, and submitting. Resources for Writers suggests both helpful books that you can check out from the library, and valuable Internet sites. You will also find links to local writing events (including some at MCPL), where you can mingle with other writers, listen to their work, learn about the craft of writing, or read your own masterpiece.
