About the event

Join Desi Writers' Lounge (DWL) at the Karachi library as they host National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) write-ins in Pakistan for the fourth year running!

NaNoWriMo is a global challenge that takes place every November, in which writers have to attempt a first draft of their novel in 30 days. The goal is to write 50,000 words between 1st and 30th November.

Most participants stay connected to the NaNoWriMo community through the website (nanowrimo.org), where they track their progress. However, in several locations all over the world, physical write-ins are organised for participants to meet and work together towards their 50,000-word goal.

Participants will meet from 3:00 to 5:00 pm every Saturday in November, to catch up on their word counts, share their experiences, and write, write, write!
