Canada :: Saskatchewan :: Regina consists of the greater Regina area, with some intrepid Wrimos from as far as Moose Jaw making the occasional quest to a write-in. The region won the 2011 League 3 Donation Derby for highest increase in average donation.

History

Regina has had an active crew of writers since before 2008, with writers meeting up even in years without an ML. Since 2008, impromptu write-ins have been held. These were initially supported by a large number of participants living in residence at the University, often taking place in common areas of the residence (this also welcomed non-NaNoing friends who were working on assignments). The practice continues today. When writers choose to venture out of the house to write, and maybe want some company, they can post in the Impromptu Write-Ins thread or send out a tweet a few hours in advance to see if anyone wants to join them.

After a couple of ML-less years, grlgoddess became ML in 2013, bringing many stickers and a jolly red bear for donations. It didn't take long for the lure of the official stickers to lead to unprecedented growth. Almost 30 individuals came to at least one event, almost doubling 2013, leaving many long time Wrimos in shock. 2014 is also when partnerships with the Saskatchewan Writers Guild and Regina Public Library began, providing the region with space for write-ins, promotion, and talks from local published writers.
