Update on printed copies of novels:
In past years, we've been able to work with sponsors
who offered NaNoWriMo winners a printed hard copy of
their novels. Though we worked hard to secure
a sponsor who would be able to do this for our
winners this year, in the end, we weren't able to
find a partner.
We know teachers especially appreciate these printed hard copies as a
way to motivate and inspire students, so we apologize for not
communicating this sooner. We've heard from some educators who've raised
money as a classroom or school to purchase printed copies for their
students, and others who've helped their students submit work to online
magazines. If your students use the on-site writing space, they can
download a PDF of their novel and bind it themselves. We hope you find
an alternative this year that makes your students happy, and we hope to
be able to offer this opportunity again in the future.
