Happy NaNoWriMo, Boston. National Novel Writing Month, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the lingo.

Clearly, Boston is full of talented writers — just read about some of the well-known literary figures with Boston ties for proof.

If you’re hoping to get your novel off the ground, you can start with resources and tools offered by the NaNoWriMo nonprofit. You can also check out these local events and offerings:

  • Be sure to choose Boston as your home region on the NaNoWriMo website. From there, you’ll be able to find NaNo Boston events.
  • Throughout the month, Boston Public Library is hosting various NaNoWriMo write-ins — aka a time when peers who are also writing novels will hunker down and write together.
  • Learn more about local writing classes and critique groups like The Writer’s Loft or Grub Street.
  • Check out (literally) these NaNoWriMo help books at one of the BPL branches.
