I check the site often, so even if it's last minute the event should still make it on the calendar. (I don't check all the forums, so if you post a WriteIn there I will not add it.)

I hope that everyone is writing furiously! I added a link to an easy to read version of the Google Calender to the links section of the regional forum. (Should be to the right of this box.) Hopefully this will make it easier for everyone to plan their months.

By the way, feel free to host your own write in! There is nothing planned for Mon or Wed yet and I know that there are many areas of the region that don't have their own write in yet. I can't make it to all the areas myself, so please help out! Even one event can make a better writing month for everyone in your area!
