The USA :: Georgia :: Elsewhere NaNoWriMo region consists of everywhere in Georgia not part of one of the other regions (or their metro areas.) As of 2010, the main groups within Georgia::Elsewhere are in the Columbus, Albany, Valdosta, and Carrolton areas.
One interesting tidbit about the Georgia::Elsewhere region - many people who start in Elsewhere end up moving into the Atlanta region. (The Atlanta metro area is approximately half the state.) There is often overlap and joint events with Atlanta and Elsewhere in some of the outer suburbs, most notably Griffin and Newnan.
In the beginning, there was only Atlanta and Elsewhere. It's safe to say all other Georgia regions except Atlanta, at some point, evolved out of Elsewhere.
2014 - The region found itself with not one, not two, but four MLs: Missie1300, jlwatt, KingSunshine, and SelenaM. Wonder what this year will bring?
2013 - The Elsewhere region found itself without an ML. Despite this, small groups of Wrimos formed around the state.
2012 - Mattkinsi continued his focus on getting local groups going, which led to bursts of activity throughout the state. He moved out of state before NaNo 2013 and no one else volunteered to lead the region, leaving the region without an ML.
2011 - Mattkinsi stepped in again to lead the Georgia::Elsewhere region and focused on getting local city groups going, which led to closer knit groups bubbling up in many part of the state, from Albany to Valdosta. Local write ins were held across the state, from coffee shops in South Georgia to the library at University of West Georgia in Carrolton. He offered to be the ML again in 2012 if (and only if) no one else steps up to ML (and he hopes someone else does this year!)
2010 - Mattkinsi, one of the co-MLs for Atlanta, felt bad that there was no ML for Georgia::Elsewhere, yet again, so stepped in to help out. Among the many elsewhere events, the Columbus Main Branch Library hosted write ins, the University of West Georgia had a kick off and mid month event, and a regular write in was held in Albany. He offered to be the ML again in 2011 if (and only if) no one else steps up to ML.
