Other WriMo’s

There are a lot of other creative drives like NaNoWriMo so we thought we would list them here – if you know of any more or spot a mistake please feel free to leave a comment!


Month of Poetry run by Kathryn Apel


WoPoWriMo – World Poetry Writing Month aim – write a poem a day for a month. (Yes well spotted this isn’t another WriMo this is This WriMo but the month just looked wrong without it!)



NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) – aim a poem a day for a month.

disclaimer – we are not a rival to NaPoWriMo, we set WoPoWriMo up a) because we were ask to by people who wanted an all inclusive poetry event and b) most of the team are going to be taking part in either Script Frenzy or NaPiBoWriWee or indeed both and felt that another poetry writing month would be useful. Besides why not do both poetry writing months? Febuary is after all a short month even on a leap year!

Script Frenzy: aim – to write a hundred page script in a month (this doesn’t just mean plays either comic book scripts are welcomed etc… )


NaPiBoWriWee: National Picture Book Writing Week aim – write 7 picture books in seven days!






GothNoWriMo (Gothic Novel Writing Month) – aim to write a gothic novel or substantial part of one starting October 1st and completed/word goal obtained before midnight October 31st Halloween! Standard goals are set at 30, 000 to 70, 000 words.


NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) – aim is to write 50, 000 words in a month

PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month) – aim 30 ideas for childrens picture books in 30 days.


NaNoFiMo (National Novel Finishing Month) – aim to finish that NaNoWriMo novel you started in Novemeber or maybe the one from last year or just one thats been laying around almost done for awhile!

And last but not least is WriYe: Writing Year aim – to write as much as possible in one year, can be across multiple projects as long as it counts as creative writing. Word count goals are set in three different brackets 50, 000 – 250, 000, 250, 000 – 500, 000 and 500, 000+.
