Dear Boston Wrimos,

Have you heard of NerdCon:Nerdfighteria? It’s coming to Boston’s Hynes Convention Center February 25-26th! Just what is it, you ask? Here’s the official answer:

“NerdCon: Nerdfighteria is the first-ever official Nerdfighter convention and celebration of 10 years of nerdfighting. It is a giant celebration of all things nerdy, creative, educational, fun, and weird.”

HERE IS A (VERY INCOMPLETE) LIST OF THINGS YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE AT NERDCON: NERDFIGHTERIA:
– Panels, workshops, discussions, & more
– Signings with Featured Guests
– Live podcast recording (including Dear Hank & John)
– Lots of music
– An expo hall with vendors, activities, and fan activism
– A board game zone
– Featured Guest kaffeeklatsches (Featured guests hang out with a dozen attendees and chat about anything & everything)
– Amazing programming brought to you by YOU, the community!

Now, I’m sure you’re asking yourself, why am I sending you an email about something unrelated to NaNoWriMo? Because it IS related to NaNoWriMo! Travis and I will be there manning a NaNoWriMo booth to help get the word out about our awesome annual event!

Aside from lots of free NaNo giveaway items, our booth will feature several things. The first is a six word story challenge. If you can successfully write a six word story in three minutes, you will receive one raffle ticket and we will share your story on our social media, namely Twitter (@NaNoBoston17).

The second is a donation station, where, for every dollar you donate, you will receive one raffle ticket which can be put towards any of our six raffles.

The third is our six raffles, of course! What are we raffling, you ask? Good question! Each of the six will include the following NaNoBoston merchandise items: a totebag, mug, pen, and Plot Bunny Writing Buddy. There are then six special items that will go with the NaNoBoston merch, which includes the following:
1. Teavana Popular Teas Gift Set
2. Tangle Art: A Meditative Drawing Kit by Beckah Krahula (Includes artist pens, pencil, artist tiles, and an instruction book.)
3. Book: No Plot? No Prolem! By Chris Baty
4. Book: Writer’s Digest University: Everything You Need To Write and Sell Your Book (Includes a CD featuring recorded live webinars with industry professionals.)
5. Book: Crafting Novels & Short Stories: The Complete Guide to Writing Great Fiction by Writer’s Digest
6. Book: The Writer's Idea Book 10th Anniversary Edition: How to Develop Great Ideas for Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Screenplays by Jack Heffron

We will be in booth #2315, stop in and say hi if you’ll be attending! We would love to see some familiar faces out there. And bring your friends, because we want to see some unfamiliar faces too!
