Sarah Hamilton
Municipal Liaison

Sarah Bio Pic

This will be Sarah’s tenth NaNoWriMo and her fifth as an ML. Originally from Edmonton, she’s called Toronto home for fifteen years and shares her life with a roommate and two small parrots. She is a willing slave to her tiny dinosaur overlords. When she’s not writing or planning awesome events for Toronto Wrimos, she enjoys playing D&D, baking, reading, and volunteering for her church.

Daeja
Chelsea Jack
Municipal Liaison

This is Daeja’s 16th year of Nano, and she’s ecstatic to be writing in Toronto for it. In her third year as an ML, you’ll be able to spot her constantly in our Discord server and hopefully popping u many of our events. In addition to writing (and editing!), she’s also invested in the professional Dota 2 scene. She’s always happy to brainstorm ideas, discuss writing and editing, or chat about esports, so poke her via Nanomail or on Discord!

Lop
Jen
Municipal Liaison

lop

This is Lop’s sixth NaNoWriMo, and second as an ML. She is excited to assume the role again, guiding her fellow Wrimos to the finish line. When she’s not writing, or at her day job, she can be found adventuring across Ferelden with Alastair in Dragon Age. Always willing to give encouragement, she will cheer each and every one of you on as you race to your finish line, whatever they may be.

bunnyhero
Mod

bunnyhero is one of the mods of the toronto nano chat room, where he can be found lurking, day and night. this will be his (lucky) 14th year doing nanowrimo! he’s been participating on and off since 2002, and even spent a couple of years as ML in a bygone era. besides nanowrimo, he likes bunnies and godzilla.

Mod

A-Chels (who answers with variable responsiveness to Chels, A-Chels, or Alyssa) is thrilled to be raring up to enter her 11th NaNo year. If she’s not rambling about vampires or pirates (or pirate vampires [vampires who dabble in piracy] or vampire pirates [pirates who happened to also be vampires]), it’s probably because she’s buried under a disorganized pile of fabric castoffs from her last cosplay project. A-Chels is also a big fan of languages and is a part-time student at Ryerson.

 

Candice Lee
Mod


Candice is an author of both Urban Fantasy and Contemporary Romance. Her first attempt at Nanowrimo was way back in 2001. She failed miserably every year until 2014, when she won for the first time. She’s been on a winning streak ever since. Candice now writes full time, and she credits it all to the supportive Nanowrimo community. She is living proof to never give up.

JB Cohen
JB Cohen
Mod

JB, who is now celebrating their 7th year of nanowrimo, is a freelance graphic designer, passion writer hoping to publish there first novel within the next year and a professional nerd. (they work at eb games, yes it is fun, yes it is stressful, no they cannot get you a deal. they don’t even get deals and yes they know about video games). Though Jb started writing and participating in Nano after a friend suggested putting there lit minor from college to good use it is also an amazing way to sort out the ideas that they have. The only bad part is between work and other outside factors there brain is still a mess. Update on last years update: the free wifi is now super speed and unlimited. plus twitch streams are golden.
