The Canada :: New Brunswick :: Fredericton region consists of the city of Fredericton and its surrounding metropolitan area. Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick and has a population of 56,224 with 105,688 in the greater metro region.

History

Fredericton started out as part of the New Brunswick region. It generally had three Municipal Liasons, one for each of the major cities (Fredericton, Moncton, and Saint John). In 2009, Moncton was given its own region and in 2010, Fredericton and Saint John followed suit. In addition to the NaNoWriMo efforts, after the 2006 event, the flagging Freddy Words was revived as a NaNo off-season writing group. They held biweekly meetings and often held write-ins, edit-ins, and writing workshops. They also held public editing workshops open to the whole city (on how to edit your NaNoWriMo novel). The group died down again after 2011 when the ML and organizer moved away.

Events

  • From 2006 until 2011, Fredericton hosted a whole slew of NaNo events, including a kickoff, midway and closing party, weekly write-ins, online write-ins, and writing events with sister regions Peoria, Illinois, and Gainsville, Florida
  • Former events also included a 12-hour midway write in with WriMos coming from Saint John, Moncton and as far away as New England
  • 2013 saw write ins occur around town in places ranging from the Second Cup to the public library
