Are you ready for the Write Nonfiction in November Challenge?
Hurry up… It’s almost time to write your book in a month.
How to Participate in WNFIN
The Write Nonfiction in November (WNFIN) Challenge, which is also known as National Nonfiction Writing Month (NaNonFiWriMo), is an informal, personal challenge.
You do not need to become a member of a site or organization. You do not need access to a forum. And there are no formal rules, like "write 50,000 words in 30 days."
The only rule is that you commit to starting AND finishing a work of nonfiction in a month.
No one counts how many words you write during the month or even checks what you write. You can write any type of nonfiction, such as a magazine article, blog posts, a white paper, or a book. And your WNFIN project can be as short or as long as you like.
You do not have to take the challenge totally on your own, though. Opportunities exist for you to be in community with other writers and to get support as you write nonfiction during the month of November.
Read on to find out how to participate in group activities during the WNFIN Challenge.
And use the navigation bar at the top of this page to learn about the history of the WNFIN Challenge, the WNFIN Summit, the WNFIN Prep Program, or to read all the WNFIN Challenge blog posts (yes...all the way back to the first year).

During November, the Write Nonfiction NOW and in November Facebook page becomes the hub of WNFIN activity. This is where you find a community of writers taking the challenge, post your status updates, ask questions, get support, and comment on the blog posts.
