Join the Challenge!

Welcome to the Nagranowrimo deviantART group.

Nagranowrimo is short for "National Graphic Novel Writing Month." The challenge is to spend the month of June working on a graphic novel.

Visit and follow the official the Nagranowrimo Tumblr

The Guidelines:
* Set your page goal for the month of June (or just see how much you can do!)
* Sketching, scripting, and layouts are allowed, but please no work on your final pages until the 1st of the month.

That's about it! Nagranowrimo's focus is on graphic novels but you may work on any sequential art. Comic strips, webcomics, a comic series are all fine.

Please read the full guideline as well as the FAQs.
Hello everyone, sorry for neglecting the dA Nagranowrimo group here.

The 2014 session is taking place in June, i.e. it starts today! I know, I couldn't possibly have given the group here shorter notice but if you're on tumblr and you want to join, read this post and sign-up today!

Quick Rules and FAQs:

*This isn't really a Nanowrimo-styled "make a whole graphic novel in a month!" type of challenge (at least not anymore), it's more a pledge that you will spend June focusing on graphic novel making (or other sequential art). You set your own goal for what you would like to accomplish this month.

*The focus is on graphic novels, but any sequential art is fine!

*You can work on a pre-existing project

As usual, you can submit your nagranowrimo-related work here, you can also submit any tutorials you find here on dA that you think will be useful for sequential artists.

That about it for now! Go go Nagranowrimo!

While the focus of this group is on graphic novel making, I want to have resources for all sorts of sequential art and illustration in general, anyone who think they'll find something useful is welcome to join!

I'd try if I have the spare time. But yeah, I'll try. If not, then there's always the next six months and another six months after that. XD

I ought to try this next year. It's a little bit easier than making 50000 words. Besides, a picture's worth a thousand words...

It's the 3rd weekend of Nagranowrimo! How are you doing?

Im super excited about this event! It'll give me a chance to see what I can do. I do have a question though; is there anywhere in particular we have to post the finished pages? Thanks :D
Ladamania Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yay, I'm happy to hear people are getting excited! You can post your pages wherever you choose and if you don't want post them anywhere public, that's fine.

On the tumblr, I've updated the rules a bit so that the goal is just, really, to do as much as you can then people will get recognized for the number of pages they complete. I think I'll just ask people to honestly report their completed pages with the option of verifying, where they can send me a link to a blog or album with pages pictures.
