We got to host the Thank Goodness It’s Over party at the central library’s multipurpose room. It was to start at 6.45pmÂ but people were early as always.
The Nanowrimo kick-off for Singapore was wonderful. With 66 people sigining in, NOT including their parents/children or friends who came with them, they filled up the programme zone of the Bishan Library.
Everything is happening on the 27th of October this year.
Don’t forget that our Nanowrimo kick-off party is at Bishan library, programme zone, level 2. The party starts at 4pm! Nanowrimoer-s sign in the book to get your nanowrimo sticker.Our party theme is DIY! If you want to bring crackers/snacks to share, feel free to do so! Best if Halal so everyone can eat it too.
Our unofficial dress code is: Wear whatever is decent to the library that you want to wear and have no occasion to, so this is the best time to wear whatever you want or show your fandom through your attire.
AND for everything else…
17 July 2012 was when the first the Hunger Games was held in Singapore. Well, more like an event at the national library featuring the Hunger Games!

The kick off for Nanowrimo in Singapore was at the multipurpose room of the National Library. Somehow even though it was to be on at 6.30pm, there were a lot of early comers filling up the seats in the front and it didn’t take long for other people to stream in too.
YES! Feel free to use the above e-poster and also tell your friends about this.
The kick off party for Nanowrimo in Singapore is on 29 October, 6.30pm at the multipurpose room (basement 1) in the National Library! Writery types, people who like cake and puns and whatnot! Come over to the party (especially if you’re going to the SWF on that day since this event is on 6.30pm which is after a lot of talks there!)
