It’s National Novel Writing Month, and  there is a fabulous  website called Young Writers Program to help teachers encourage students to write.

The site includes the ability to create virtual classrooms to monitor student progress and student forums to discuss writing, as well as lesson plans.

You can learn more about this annual event at NaNoWriMo Celebrates 20 Years. The New York Times is doing its bit to support the month by publishing Ready. Set. Write a Book., which shares lots of digital tools that can help people write a book.
