Kids Sign on for National Novel Writing Month — The Digital Shift | Ignite Reading & Writing |

National Novel Writing Month kicks off today. The annual event in which participants pledge to write a novel during the month of November features a Young Writers Program. Resources include a classroom kit, a teacher’s forum, and pep talks.

“We dare you to make your villain write an apology letter to your main character,” is among the challenges set forth by the “Dare Machine,” a fun set of writing prompts. Participants register on the site to set and maintain a word count goal and then, write like the wind.
