NaNoWriMo executive director to speak in Carmel


Grant Faulkner, published author and executive director of National Novel Writing Month, will speak in Carmel Sept. 28. Following the free event, there will be a meet-up for the local chapter of the organization at 8:30 p.m.


National Novel Writing Month, commonly shortened to NaNoWriMo, has hundreds of thousands of participants every year worldwide. The goal is to write a 50,000 word manuscript between Nov. 1 and 30. Several books written during the month have been published through traditional publishing houses, including the novel Water for Elephants, which was turned into a film starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.

Faulkner will talk about his new book, “Pep Talks for Writers: 52 Insights and Actions to Boost Your Creative Mojo.” He’ll be available to answer questions from NaNoWriMo participants as well.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. at Quirkey Feather Confectionary, 890 E. 116th Street, Suite 125.
