I discovered Nano when I moved to London three years ago, and I’ve been happily hooked ever since. I love the buzz and excitement that comes from setting myself such a ridiculous high word count goal and working towards it with such an amazing group of people. I can say for certain that I wouldn’t have won any of my Nanos without the wonderful Nano London community keeping me on my toes!
I've been involved in organising write-ins since my second Nano, and have been a London co-ML since 2011. This year, my awesome co-MLs are Jenn (Jenepel), Suzanne (Kaleidoscope27) and Tom (holly6000).
I couldn’t be more giddy or excited about all the events we have in the works for you guys! So, if you’d like to attend friendly and welcoming write-ins in Central London, or slightly crazier events (NanoRilla!), keep an eye on the London Regional Lounge – we'll have dates and places there for you!
If you have any questions, or if you just want to say hi, feel free (and welcome!) to Nanomail me, or come and talk to me at events. If in doubt I’ll be the loud one, with the purple glasses and the weird accent. Seriously, I can’t wait to meet everyone new and catch up with returning Wrimos!
