Kick Off Party!

Kick Off Party!

Start off NaNo right by coming to our Kick Off Party.  There will be games, door prizes, a potluck and silent auction.  Meet your fellow wrimos and learn about our exciting month of fun!


When: Sunday October 27, 2013
Where: The Avenue Cafe (Gone Wired) 2021 E Michigan Ave, Lansing, MI (Enter through back as it will be opening early for us.)
Time: 1 – 4 pm.


  • Games – We’ll have a get to know you game, a pimp my plot station and other games to get you into the creative flow.
  • Door Prizes – There will be several cool door prizes given away throughout the event.
  • Goodie Bags – Your very own NaNoLansing Survival Bag will be awaiting you filled with treats and helpful items.
  • Silent Auction – New this year as a fundraising incentive.  Please bring items to donate for our silent auction (and bring some cash so you can buy them).  We already have some good looking items up for bidding.  This is your chance to get some really nice stuff for a song of a price.  (All proceeds will be donated to NaNoWriMo.  For every $10 received, one broke wrimo will be chosen to receive a halo and donor badge under their name.)
  • Potluck – If you can, bring some food to share.  The kitchen may not open until 3 pm.  (If you can’t bring food, come anyway.  We still want to see you!)

RSVP Please:
We need to know how many goodie bags to create, so please RSVP by Friday October 25th.  Post your RSVP here at our Eventbrite site.

Prep Workshops
We’ve had great fun at our previous workshops and we have one more left.
Thursday October 24 at 7 pm at the Avenue Cafe 2021 E Michigan Ave Lansing, MI we will Breathe Life Into Our Characters.

Here’s the description – As most NaNo vets can tell you, when you’ve lost the plot and the story is just not moving the way you want it’s the characters that help you find you way – even if its by misbehaving. We’ll take this time to discover and flesh out the characters that will move the plot along.
