November is National Novel Writing Month and whether you actively sign up to write a novel in November or just want to learn more about writing, we have resources to help!
Gale Courses has a number of online classes about writing and publishing. Learn writing essentials, effective editing, writing fiction, writing children’s books, making money with your writing and other topics. All of the courses are led by expert instructors and offered at no cost to you with your library card. Courses run for six weeks and new sessions begin every month.
In the Learning Express Library, you can improve your writing by taking writing and grammar skills tutorials as well as consulting eBooks available in the resource on these subjects.
Use NoveList or NoveList K-12 to check and see what types of plots, characters and appeal factors writers use to get noticed. While these resources won’t teach you specifically how to write, you can learn what is published and how readers find more books to read like their favorites – after all hopefully you will be writing to be read!
We also have print resources to help so be sure to check the catalog too!
So go forth and write the next great American novel!
