Every Wednesday or Thursday, we’ll email out a list of regional announcements. The peptalks will be on Sundays, with more being posted daily in the Adopt a Day threads and to our website throughout the month. With that said, here are this week’s announcements for the Atlanta region.
1. The Adopt a Day threads are going strong, but we still have just a couple of days left to be adopted! If interested, check the forum post on how to adopt a day, and don’t forget to participate! We LOVE seeing those word counts, so even if you know you aren’t going to win, post and be proud!
2. Every year we have a month long raffle. This year, when you buy a ticket, you get a free postcard too! The drawing will be at one of our TGIO (Thank Goodness It’s OVER!) parties and there will be all kinds of goodies – from books to panda gear to posters to oh my. We also have BUTTONS for sale this year, in what is sure to become an annual tradition. Both the buttons and the raffle tickets are a $1, and you can get them at any write in where you see [ML] in the title.
3. This Saturday is our infamous MARTA Write-In, organized by Quintopia (thanks Quin!) starting at 11am at SIP by Lindberg and ending at 9pm in Dunwoody. For more details about the MARTA Write In, check out the special forum post on it. If you’re looking for a write in near you, check out our massive regional calendar! We have over 100 events posted!
4. NOVEMBER TWENTIETH is NaNoLanta’s Evening of Writing Wildly. From 5-10pm at Oglethorpe University, we will have an evening filled with word wars, a speaker, prizes, and more. There’s a $25 donation to attend, which gets you 5 door prize tickets. For every 5 dollars over $25 you donate at the event, you’ll get another door prize ticket. More details about the event will be released in next week’s Annoucements Email. We have folks coming from the Carolinas and Alabama. Want to be there too? RVSP please! This event is limited to the first 150 RSVPs and we’re over 30! RSVP here – https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFJBUEFicnJOQkpqZ2JYVVNTXzR3WWc6MQ and check out additional details in the regional forum.
5. And finally, a reminder to please donate! Toronto is beating us! Your donations only register for Atlanta’s total if you are homed with the region AND have posted a word count. So please get those wordcounts updated!
– Mattkinsi, Tiakall, Hype, and Sushimustwrite, your NaNoLanta Co-MLs
