The Nottingham UK NaNoWriMo Group

Originally founded in 2003, our diverse Notts NaNo group is entering its 17th year as the official Nottingham, UK regional group for NaNoWriMo, a writing event where the level of competition depends solely on the writer.

Upcoming Meets

Our Pre-NaNo meetup will be at Café Sobar, 22-24 Friar Lane, Nottingham on the 26th October 2019, starting around 11am.  It’ll almost be time for the main event – have you plotted out your novel yet, or are you planning on pantsing the month? Drop by for a drink and a cake and let us know.
