To that end, myself and fellow MLs have already kicked off the year with an introduction post on our regional forum. https://forums.nanowrimo.org/c/regions/illinois-naperville/459

    Hello Wrimos! We're halfway through August and your MLs starting to get write-ins scheduled. But first, did you hear the big news? NaNoWriMo will be offically on-line this year. If you missed the email, you can read about it here: https://forums.nanowrimo.org/t/no-in-person-events-for-nanowrimo-2020/182527

    Essentially, all offical NaNo events will be viritual. The Kickoff, TGIO, Write-Ins - all of it.

    Most of our events will be explained and shared on the offical NaNo Fourm we have for our region: https://forums.nanowrimo.org/c/regions/illinois-naperville/459

    It's kinda empty right now, but expect for things to really get up and swinging in late September!
