Alberta Elsewhere is the home to the Wrimosaur. A prehistoric writerly creature that lives in the nooks and crannies of the Great White North.

Rarely seen outside of the month of November, the Wrimosaur is a proud creature. Ready to write a moment’s notice. No plot is too big or too small for the Wrimosaur to tackle. It is a true literary wonder.

But fear not! Whether you’ve been doing NaNo for more than a decade or just joined up, you’ll be sure to find a warm welcome there.

Belgium Flanders covers the Northern half of a tiny European country called Belgium. Spread out and small in number they might be, but you should not underestimate the Wrimos living there.

Known for their chocolate, fickle weather, whimsical writers, and the ever growing plotbunny horde that follows their ML around. They are a friendly region and always happy to meet new people, so don’t be afraid to come and say hello.

Just be warned you might end up going home with a few extra plotbunnies.

Luxembourg, also known as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is one of the tiniest countries directly in the heart of Western Europe. The scenery is stunning, going from the more mountainous regions to the vineyards in the east, and with a big number of castles still standing proud.

Makers of wine, grape juice, and quite decent beer, you’ll certainly have plenty to taste if you were ever to visit.

And although the writers may be shy, they are writerly indeed having taken on much bigger regions and won. By a landslide.

California Elsewhere is home to a diverse group of scribblers across the Golden State of California. It covers all the nooks, crannies, and in-betweens of the three dozen other regions in the state.

Being one of the richest and most diverse parts of the world, you will be sure to find something interesting to see (and write about).

Just be sure to pack enough sunscreen if you are visiting during the summer months, because warm isn’t just a description for the Wrimos living there.

Louisiana Lake Charles with their buccaneer gator mascot is one of the more colourful regions in the Wrimoverse. With rich culture, interesting history and the many amazing features and waterways it’s truly a sight to behold.

Their Wrimos might come across as a quiet group at first, but get to know them and you realise just how wonderful a bunch of writers they are. Fully committed to staying just this side of sane.

A region filled with pirate stories, southern cooking, and gators. What could possibly go wrong?

Based in and around the greater Muskegon area along the lovely shores of Lake Michigan lies the Michigan Muskegon County region. A region as unusual and interesting as it is diverse.

Surrounded by water, wilderness and weirdness, and terrorised by their regional mascot The Skeeg, the Wrimos there are made of tough stuff. They have to be if they want to keep up with their MLs.

Visiting them is certainly an experience you’ll never forget. Just be prepared to hide if you see a possessed typewriter coming your way.

Pennsylvania Elsewhere is a fairly spread out region with participants from all corners of the Pennsylvania area. It might seem deceptively small at first glance, but it’s bigger than you think and a tad difficult to get around in.

The Wrimos here are a wacky bunch, so it perhaps comes as no surprise that their mascot is even more peculiar. Uno the zombie raptor was so loyal to the region that even death could not stop him from keeping the Wrimos company.

Please do refrain from feeding him, or there will be a mess to clean.

Rhode Island Elsewhere is a region set in the smallest state with the longest name. We’re not kidding, its full name is Rhode Island and the Providence Plantations. If that isn’t a mouthful, we don’t know what is.

Despite its small size it is home to a lot of wonderful writerly Wrimos and their cocky mascot Rudy the Rhode Island Red Rooster. Who is generally friendly, but will peck you if you slack off.

Fondly named the Ocean State it has a number of oceanfront beaches and a truly stunning shoreline.So be sure to bring a beach towel and a good book to read when you go there.

The regions Utah Country is one of the most laid back regions in the Wrimoverse. Kind Wrimos dwell here. They generally don’t take thing too seriously, but can certainly hold their own when it comes to writing.

Utah County is known as Happy Valley. It’s home to several colleges and located just south of Salt Lake City. Surrounded by high mountains, they have hot summers and cold snowy winters.

With its major landmarks and awe inspiring nature, anyone visiting will be sure to find much inspiration for the setting of their next stories.
