Originally founded in 2003, our diverse Notts NaNo group is entering its 16th year as the official Nottingham regional group for NaNoWriMo, a writing event where the level of competition depends solely on the writer.

Upcoming Meets

Our January meetup will be at Café Sobar, 22-24 Friar’s Lane, Nottingham on the 5th January 2019, starting around 11am.  Did you make any writing New Year’s Resolutions?  Have you started writing already?  Drop by for a drink and a cake and let us know.
