FAIRMONT, W.Va. – Despite being surrounded by books, kids in the Marion County Public Library Tuesday weren’t there to read, but to create their own reading material.
November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and the library is hosting an educational program to introduce children and young adults to the art, allowing them to take the role of authors for the first time.
“National Novel Writing Month is actually an international program,” Cynthia Garcia, volunteer instructor of the NaNoWriMo program at the library, said. “It’s where people who are interested in writing make a commitment to try to write a novel during the month of November.”
