Sigma Tau Delta Celebrates National Novel Writing Month

Tuesday, 12 November, 2013

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor society looking for volunteers to help write a novel... IN A DAY. To celebrate National Novel Writing Month, Sigma Tau Delta invites everyone to join them on Tuesday, November 12 from 12:00-4:00pm, at Humanities Plaza, to share their favorite lines from their favorite books and partake in writing an "exquisite corpse."  An "exquisite corpse" takes its name from a parlor game popular with the Surrealists and is a type of communal writing where individuals each contribute a line to create the work.  

National Novel Writing Month (known popularlly as NaNoWriMo) is a fun, "seat-of-your-pants" approach to creative writing. Every year on November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.
