NaNoWriMo gives adults a goal of 50,000 words in 30 days. While the Young Writers Program (YWP) allows 17-and-under participants to join in on the fun, but set reasonable, yet challenging, individual word-count goals.
The Young Writers Program was founded in 2005, in response to the countless teachers who wrote in wanting to bring noveling to the classroom.
The Young Writers Program provides free Common Core-adapted curricula and student workbooks for all grade levels, as well as classroom kits to all educators teaching the program. Kids and teens also participate independently through our motivational, community-based website.
