Local Volunteers

What are Municipal Liaisons?

Municipal Liaisons (MLs) are volunteers who add a vibrant, real-world aspect to NaNoWriMo festivities all over the world.

They host regular writing events in November—and some MLs host write-ins, parties, and workshops all year long. They also oversee their regional forums and act as official NaNo representatives.



Want to become a Municipal Liaison?

Think you have what it takes to plan and host writing events in your local region, and rah-rah participants to the finish line? Do you just happen to own an excessive number of power strips ideal for that one cafe that somehow has only one electrical outlet? ML-ing may be for you!

The bare necessities:

  • You are over 18 years of age.
  • You have done (and won!) NaNoWriMo at least once.

The details of what you’ll be expected to do:

  • Commit to the entirety of NaNoWriMo.
  • Plan, host, and spread the word about local writing events.
  • Answer every email or NaNoMail from local participants.
  • Be present in your regional forum.
  • Engage in fundraising.
  • Try your very hardest to reach 50,000 words.
  • Read emails and messages from HQ.
