Curbside NaNoWriMo

Despite NaNoWriMo being online this year, the Palouse Writers Guild is still encouraging local writers to connect and share. We have partnered with the Potlatch Public Library and Troy Public Library to host “Motivational Mondays” for those community members who wish to participate in a “curbside” NaNoWriMo program. Budding writers will receive the emotional support needed to see them through the end of the month by picking up grab bags to keep them motivated.

Each Monday in November a new NaNoWriMo packet will be available for pick-up at the Potlatch and Troy libraries. Each motivational pack includes:

  • Games/writer crafts
  • Novel planning worksheets
  • Words of encouragement/advice from local published authors
  • Small candy/snack
  • NaNoWriMo swag


In addition, an official NaNoWriMo chart will be displayed on one of the library’s corkboards, where participants can update their progress and see how they are stacking up against other writers in the community. Those writers who finish the month will be rewarded with a TGIO (Thank God It’s Over) Pack which will include celebratory items and a FREE BOOK* compliments of BookPeople of Moscow.

  1. I hope you are all faring well during these turbulent times. I applaud everyone’s efforts to carry on and continue writing. My physical address (in the Czech Republic) loses significance in this digital age, so I can take the pulse easily of what goes on in Moscow, where I still have roots. I am a professional developmental editor and publisher–award winning, actually, and I have a standard offer to read up to 30 pages of your work and give your feedback, without charge. To take advantage of this offer, send me your pages, double spaced, Times New Roman to And in the meantime, stay well, love each other, and know that your words, well-composed, never have to socially distance themselves from others.
