Raising Autodidacts

Great -- I bet they will love it! Check out the workbooks on the Young Writer's Program web-site, they are really helpful. Happy writing!

I'm familiar with NaNoWriMo and my writers friends use to join every year in this event. They say the event really helps them to develop their writing skills. I'm not fond of writing but my kids are really a huge enthusiasts. I think I'll be engaging with the said event now, not for myself but for my three kids. I'm pretty sure this idea will excite them. Thank you!

Raising Autodidacts

Hi, thanks for the question! Yes, you can absolutely still participate in the Summer Camp, just click on the Camp NaNoWriMo banner within the post and sign up! For ages 8-12, I definitely recommend the Young Writers Program in the fall. The challenge is to write a novel in 30 days, starting Nov 1 and ending Nov 30, however, there are lots of great workbooks available at the NaNoWriMo YWP web-site so you can get started sometime in Sept. Click on the "Ready, Set, Write" link in this post to find a link to the workbooks. There is an elementary version and middle school version. Happy Writing. We love NaNoWrimo!

This sounds like a really great program. Is it still ongoing? And could there possibly be a program similar to this for younger children, between 8 and 12 years old?
