PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Writing Center and National Novel Writing Month chapter on campus are hosting a read out event, “A Night of Literary Abandon.” The event is free and open to UW-Platteville students and the community. It will be held Thursday, April 11 from 6-8 p.m. in Platteville Room West in the Markee Pioneer Student Center.

At the read out event, NaNoWriMo participants will present portions of the novels they wrote during National Novel Writing Month. A presenter from UW-Madison, whose NaNoWriMo work is in the process of publication, will be in attendance to share her experience.

National Novel Writing Month is held each November. Participants of NaNoWriMo use the month to write a novel with as many words as possible. “I think the goal is to bring writers together and provide them with a chance to start a novel,” said Morgan Spitzer, interim coordinator of the UW-Platteville Writing Center. “Getting involved with NaNoWriMo is a great way for someone to start and finish the novel they’ve always wanted to write.”

With a few hundred students engaged in NaNoWriMo on campus, the read out event is meant to be part of the creative process for writers. “We hope the event encourages creative sharing of NaNo participants’ work,” said Spitzer.
