Midnight Kick-Off – October 31st from 10 pm -2 am at the Boston Pizza Southport, located at 10456 Southport Rd SW. This late night event means we can cheer each other on as we start writing, so bring whatever writing materials you require.

Marathon Write-In – Last year’s event at the Odyssey didn’t make enough cash for the venue so we are going back to an old standby. This year, Marathon will be Saturday, November 24th at the Husky House restaurant located at 2525 32 Ave NE from 1:00 – 9:00 pm.
Thank Goodness It’s Over (TGIO) – December 8th this year. We don’t have confirmation of the venue yet, but we will let you know ASAP. We know it’s a bit later in the month than normal, but trust me, you want to celebrate with all your MLs. Come on out and celebrate the fact you survived another November. Win or lose, we want to see you. And, if you come out, you will go home with a prize!
