In the National Novel Writing Month and Script Frenzy forums, a Regional Lounge is a forum in which Wrimos can get to know each other and coordinate real life write-ins. Most regional lounges are moderated by one or more municipal liaisons (MLs), who coordinate events in that region. In larger regions, particularly in regions labeled Elsewhere, participants may volunteer to coordinate events closer to their homes.

All regional lounges are All-Ages forums.

Wrimos and Frenziers can choose to affiliate with as many regions as they please. Being a member of a region allows you to see that region's forum in the main forum page, as well as receiving any emails that the ML sends. Participants can also choose a region to be their home region. For most participants, the home region is the region that they live closest to. Choosing a home region in NaNoWriMo means that your word count and donations also count toward your home region's totals, giving your region a boost up the charts.

How to affiliate with a region

  1. Visit the regions directory.
  2. Find a region near you. There's a search bar that you can use. If you don't know where to start, try searching for a city near you. If you're outside the United States or Canada, try searching by country.
  3. The fourth column will have a red hyperlink and say Join. Click that. Note: if you've already affiliated with that region, the fourth column will be blank.
  4. You'll be asked if you want to affiliate with the region. Click Join.
  5. You'll be affiliated with your chosen region region. Congratulations!

How to select a home region

  1. Go to the regions directory.
  2. Click the Home region tab. It's the third tab.
  3. Your options are no home region and any of the regions you've affiliated with. You can choose only one home region, so choose wisely. You can always change your mind later.
  4. Click the radio button next to the region you want to home with and click Set Home Region.
  5. Congratulations! You are now homed with a region.
