What is a Community Novel Project?

The goal of the Community Novel Project is to help writers gain skills and learn techniques that transfer to their writing careers, through working together on a collaborative writing project.

Follow along on our writing, editing and publishing progress on our annual project by looking Behind the Scenes to find handouts and notes from workshops. Find upcoming events under Get Involved to gain skills and learn techniques . Community Novel Project is open to anyone who wants to learn more about being a writer, editor, marketer, or in any other role needed to successfully self-publish a book.
