USA :: Iowa:: Central Iowa Authors is a Iowa region that covers much of the middle of Iowa. This is a very large and active group. In November we have write-ins every day of the month. Most of these are live but some are live streaming.

The Central Iowa Authors region is the only NaNo region with "Authors" in its name.


  • The region was originally named United States :: Iowa:: Des Moines but we quickly learned that Iowa has a significant amount of writers and future authors. The name was changed to Central Iowa to accommodate all of the area, as well as enjoying our new acronym the CIA.
  • But don't let boundaries give you a false impression. Our members stay with us even when they move to Florida, Washington, Montana, Indiana and more. Once in the CIA, folks rarely leave.
