Message Maryah_Stevens ASAP if you'd like to attend the meeting at Books A Million in Dickson City Scranton from 6pm until 9pm during one of these dates:

March, Friday the 1st or the 15th.
March, Saturday the 2nd or the 16th.

I will announce ASAP which date gets the most votes. THIS NEXT MEETING IN MARCH IS IMPORTANT! Various Wrimos and I have decided that this next meeting will be the perfect time and place to decide locations for Camp April's weekly Write in schedule for dates, times, and locations.

The next write in will be Saturday February 9th from 4pm to 7pm. However, if you’d like to offer restaurant options and share dinners with fellow wrimos, please contact me (maryah_stevens) ASAP so we can schedule our ‘discussion dinners’ before (or after?) Our write in! That way I can let everyone know sooner than later if we are, for example, meeting for food at Dennys from 4 to 5 and then attending BAM after food until 7pm.

Maryah here! Saturday January 12th at Books A Million Bookstore in Dickson City Scranton, (100 Viewmont Mall, Scranton, Pennsylvania 18508) we have our first monthly write in from 4pm to 7pm! So far we have seven wrimos attending, two maybes, and 32 others invited! You do not have to RSVP but if you’d like to, let me know through a nanomail, the discord channel, or our regional boards and facebook group where our event is listed. I will be there the entire time so come when you can and stay however long you’d like! The goal of this gathering is to express our writing goals for 2019 be it new projects, editing, anything! We’re here to support you year round!

What does everyone think of 4pm to 7pm on Saturday the 12th of January 2019 at (BAM) Books a Million in Dickson City Scranton as our first monthly off season write in time and location? So far I have three confirms so if I get no feedback them this will be the time and date!!

As some of you have expressed interest, our 1st monthly write-in for the year will be in January (2019) on Saturday the 12th at (BAM) Books a Million in Dickson City Scranton, (down the road from where we had our last Panera Bread Write-In). We are going to compare the two locations and see which is best for our future write-ins! We will have one meeting a month during the offseason, and one meeting a week during Camps, (April and July), and Nano, (November). So far up to ten other wrimos are okay with this January date and location and have RSVP’d. It is far enough ahead for a majority of those to make plans. At the moment there is no scheduled time but it will more than likely be a 3-hour window in the afternoon or evening. Please send me feedback and let me know what the best 3-hour time frame is for you! Once a set time is established, I will send out another announcement! The time must be between noon and 9pm.

Good morning, Scrimos! (Do you like that? Scranton Wrimos? Scribes? Lol!) We have our Scranton Write In today at 3pm-5pm at the Albright Memorial Public Library! (There are two buildings on the same side of the street. It is not the building on your left with the donkey statue at the door. It is the building to the right that kinda looks like you're walking into hogwarts, gate and everything!) Parking is tricky but free on weekends! We host our Write Ins on the second floor in the office room on your right at the top of the stairs! Can't wait to see you there! If you can't attend we still have our voice chat Discord write in tonight at 8pm!

Our first write in is from 11am-4pm at the West Pittston library today! The main road to the West Pittston library, Exeter Avenue/PA Route 92, is under construction but open. There is no parking on 92, but I believe you can park on Warren Street in front if the library! Hope to see some of you there, if not, we have our scranton meet up tomorrow from 3pm-5pm! Happy Donation Day!

We will be raffling off this poster at our TGIO party! (No date yet!) If you want a chance to get this poster, come to our write ins and receive a ticket for each write in you are able to attend! For those who can not attend write ins, we will raffling off this cute door handle sign to members participating with our region online, be it word sprints, word wars, or general support of your region members!).

And finally, I had a custom mascot made for us, and she needs a name! Our honorary ml 'nano-doe' mascot will be attending most write ins and parties, so look for her at our tables when you arrive!
