National Novel Writing Month, more commonly referred to as NaNoWriMo, is under way. Have you considered inviting participating writers into your library for an “open swim” writing event? The official website offers a publicity kit for the price of shipping but you could always create your own promotional materials as well.
A quick tip: If you are affiliated with an institution that subscribes to Project Muse, you can access several excellent literary journals, including Ecotone (a new favorite of mine), New England Review, Ploughshares, Prairie Schooner, and River Teeth. Access these titles and more (after logging in) here.
This post is part of my on-going series on the Ann Arbor District Library’s (AADL) Summer Game.
The “We are all Weird” badge did something very interesting: it incorporated basic information literacy into the Game.
