5th Annual Evening of Writing Wildly: WonderLanta Tea Party


EWW is back and better than ever!

For our 5th Annual Evening of Writing Wildly, the NaNoLanta MLs are going all out with a brand new theme: the WonderLanta Tea Party! We’re ramping up the schedule with Alice themed games and challenges, awesome new prizes, and ML cosplay.

Even better news? No more pot luck! We’ll be providing light fare, including veggie, meat, and cheese platters, various sweets, and totally legit cucumber sandwiches. We’ll also have a selection of hot beverages and ML lapixystix’s completely amazing autumnal punch.

In order for us to ensure that everyone is well fed, please RSVP at This Google Doc and pay in advance if possible. Payments ARE refundable; just ask lapixystix.

Here’s the deets:

When is it? Where is it?

November 21st, 2015, from 6:00PM to 10:PM. We’re returning to the Agnes Scott College campus, site of the 3rd Annual EWW in 2013. Room to be announced closer to the date.

How much is it? Where do I pay?

This year, the entrance fee is $20.

You can pay in cash at the door or in advance directly to lapixystix or JFCJames, or you can pay via credit card at YouCaring. They don’t withhold any money for themselves, so it would be nice if you slipped them an extra buck or two (you’ll see the option) but you don’t have to. If you pay through YouCaring, be sure to leave a note about who the payment is for. Otherwise it will get really confusing at the door.

As mentioned before, we would absolutely love payment in advance. It’s really hard to cater for anywhere between 10 and 30 people. So as an incentive, we’ll be giving everyone who pays on or before November 19th a little swag bag. Nothing crazy of course, but a token of appreciation from lapixystix and JFCJames to you. They will also be available at the door for a nominal fee.

Where does all that money go?

Mostly to NaNoWriMo. Some of it will be going toward expenses, but lapixystix is pretty much the most frugal party planner on the planet. A budget will be available upon request soon.

Why aren’t you using stayclassy?

Unfortunately, money donated through stayclassy doesn’t get credited to NaNoLanta. lapixystix likes getting credit. Also, she likes getting the donation gifts to use for prizes next year.

I’m coming from out of town! Is there somewhere I can stay overnight?

Yep. Just let us know and we’ll figure it out.

I really like to cook and/or I have some dietary restrictions! Can I bring food?

Of course you can! If you’re bringing food to share, let lapixystix know in advance so she can make a sign and bring appropriate dishes for it.  If you’re just bringing stuff for you, enjoy. 🙂

I want to help! Do you need a hand with this?

<3. We do. We’re looking for 2-4 volunteers to give us a couple hours before the event and under an hour afterward to help with set-up and break-down. The admission fee will be waived for volunteers. Contact lapixystix directly for details.

You didn’t answer all my questions.

I’m not psychic. I thought I was, but it turned out to be too many margaritas. Ask away on the EWW Thread or contact the MLs directly.
