Local Volunteers

What are Municipal Liaisons?

NaNoWriMo is not an online-only event! We have local volunteers called Municipal Liaisons (MLs) all over the world. You can find your region here (it’s best to search by state or province) and click through to its regional forum. You will see your ML(s) at the top.

Municipal Liaisons add a vibrant real-world aspect to the writerly festivities of NaNo. They host Kick-Off Parties to celebrate the beginning of this whirlwind month; weekly write-ins (often in cafes or libraries) where you can join other local writers pounding their way towards 50,000 words; and “Thank God It’s Over” Parties to relax and commiserate with your fellow writers about your sore hands. They also oversee their regional forums and can answer many questions you might have about NaNo.

We appreciate our MLs more than we can say, and heartily encourage you to get in touch with the one in your region. See a full list below!

Becoming an ML

Think you have what it takes to plan and host writing events in your local region, and rah-rah participants to the finish line? Are you bursting with ideas for interesting write-in locations and full of excitement at the thought of guiding newbies through their first NaNoWriMo? Do you just happen to own an excessive number of power strips ideal for that one cafe that somehow has only one electrical outlet? MLing may be for you!

The bare necessities:

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