SUNY Adirondack offers ‘Write Ins’ for future novelists

SUNY Adirondack is encouraging budding novelists to put their thoughts down on paper during November as part of National Novel Writing Month, commonly known as NaNoWriMo.

SUNY Adirondack’s Center for Reading and Writing will serve as an official NaNoWriMo "Come Write In!" Space in November. Each Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m., the Center for Reading and Writing will hold “Write Ins” where students and community members are invited to use the center as a writing lab.

"NaNoWriMo connects our campus writing community with the community at large,” said Khristeena Lute, director of the Center for Reading and Writing at SUNY Adirondack. “Writing is a skill, and regular practice is necessary for writers to improve. Water cannot flow through a closed faucet, and the creativity is much the same.”

The Center for Reading and Writing, located on the main floor of the library in Scoville Learning Center, is a tutoring resource regularly available to SUNY Adirondack students, faculty and staff. The facility promotes the skills needed for college-level learning, and visitors work with tutors at any stage of their reading or writing project – from understanding the assignment and brainstorming ideas to proofreading the final draft of a written paper.

NaNoWriMo is an international creative writing event where thousands of writers write alongside each other for camaraderie and encouragement as they attempt to write 50,000 words in a single month.

To become an official participant of NaNoWriMo, register for free at and commit to entering a word count throughout November. At the end of the month, participants can earn prizes, badges or awards for their writing. Some even earn publication offers.
