In past years, we were able to work with sponsors who offered NaNoWriMo winners a free printed hard copy of their novels. Sadly, we aren't able to do that any more.
However, there are other ways to publish your book! We've partnered with Blurb, a self-publishing platform, to offer an easy, cheap pathway to book printing. Learn more details here. Other options including printing the PDF and binding it yourself, or looking into magazines or journals that accept submissions from young writers.
We also have special opportunities (including publishing options) for teachers doing our programs in schools that use Title 1 funding to operate school-wide programs. (Find the link at the bottom of our Teacher Resources page.)
