Outskirts Press Sponsors NaNoWriMo 2012

Leading self-publishing and book marketing service provider, Outskirts Press, announces sponsorship of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November. Sponsorships help NaNoWriMo continue to offer valuable creative writing programs.

Denver, CO, November 02, 2012 --( Outskirts Press, the fastest-growing self-publishing and book marketing firm, is sponsoring the 2012 National Novel Writing Month, an annual worldwide writing challenge that takes place in November.

National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo (nan-no-RYE-moe) for short, is an Internet-based creative writing project that challenges writers to pen 50,000 words from November 1 through November 30. The virtual event started in 1999 with fewer than two dozen writers and grew to more than 256,000 participants in 2011.

Outskirts Press is an Inc. 5000 company that supports self-publishing authors with the tools they need to write, publish, publicize and distribute their works. Through sponsorship of NaNoWriMo, Outskirts Press will be helping the nonprofit NaNoWriMo continue to offer the annual event at no charge to participants. NaNoWriMo also funds creative education initiatives, such as the Young Writers Program, which brings free writing curricula, lesson plans, workbooks and more to tens of thousands of schoolchildren each year.

NaNoWriMo challenges can be used by would-be authors to kick-start writing efforts, or by experienced authors to switch up to a more stream-of-consciousness style for a while. The goal, according to NaNoWriMo, is to “write for completion rather than perfection.” For fledgling and old-hat writers alike, the experience offers many advantages:

a definitive starting point for a first or next writing project
a break from the usual writing routine
the start of a new, more disciplined writing routine
the chance to explore a stream-of-consciousness writing approach
the opportunity to hash-out ideas that have lain dormant
the chance to connect with other writers
a sense of accomplishment, whatever the final word count, and the realization of creative potential

While many participants in NaNoWriMo end their participation with the November 30 writing deadline, Outskirts Press can assist those who wish to take their efforts to the next step. NaNoWriMo participants are eligible for a 10% discount on the Diamond or Pearl publishing packages with the valid promotion code (NaNo12) when they choose to publish their book through Outskirts Press.

In addition to publishing and distribution, Outskirts Press provides a wide range of services to authors, regardless of where they choose to publish their book. These services include editing, formatting, cover design, illustration, ebook publishing and much more. Learn more about self-publishing book marketing solutions by visiting Outskirts Press at
