Wikiwrimo is an unofficial wiki devoted to the history and culture of all things National Novel Writing Month. It was founded by current Wikiwrimo admin Sushimustwrite.

The idea for a wiki related to NaNoWriMo is not new; the United States::Illinois::Naperville region has maintained a wiki as part of its regional website for quite some time[1], and there exists an unofficial password-access wiki for current MLs. However, no general wiki existed before Wikiwrimo, something founder Sushimustwrite realized during NaNoWriMo 2009. Sushimustwrite registered the domain wikiwrimo.org on 5 June 2010, and the wiki started gaining content the next day.

The Regional Directory was created in 2011 as a one-year anniversary project. Wikiwrimo was also featured in the Procrastination Station after site relaunch in 2011.

Wikiwrimo passed 500 pages in October 2010 [2] and 2000 pages sometime before May 2015 [3].

While Wikiwrimo is an unofficial wiki, the NaNoWriMo staff refer to Wikiwrimo regularly, so no pressure to keep this site updated. None at all.
