Who’s behind JuNoWriMo (June Novel Writing Month)?
Anna Howard and Becca Campbell, two participants and huge fans of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) got together in 2012 to form the fresh, summery, citrus-smelling event called JuNoWriMo. With the help of an amazing group of volunteers, JuNoWriMo has taken place each June since. Here’s a little more about this year’s crew.
An author and dabbler in all things creative, Becca J. Campbell loves thinking up stories about supernatural abilities, experimenting with painting techniques, portrait drawing in her sketchbook, and recycling stuff into cool products for her UpCycled Chic By Becca–all whilst raising and home-educating three rambunctious boys.
