New message from your #NaNoWriMo USA :: Michigan :: #Detroit Municipal Liaison, EBuff75 #motownNaNoWriMo

New message from your USA :: Michigan :: Detroit Municipal Liaison, EBuff75

Hello to all of you from NaNoWriMoTown! Welcome to the 2019 incarnation of NaNoWriMo, which marks 20 years of literary abandon!

First, a bit of an apology. We know that the new website has been quite glitchy and it’s been affecting us as well. Headquarters is working diligently and are fixing bugs as quickly as they can. Please be patient with them (and us) as we all get used to a completely new format.

Now, make sure to go out to the new site and log in. Take some time to explore and find your way around. The Detroit region’s page has links to the forums, Discord, and website if you need any of those. If you need to visit the old site for any reason, don’t worry, the old site is still there in archive form. This might be useful if you wanted to find your old buddies, as that is one aspect which didn’t translate over to the new site. 😦

So what’s going on here in our neck of the woods? Your leadership team has been hard at work securing locations for events and planning our team competition for the year. You may have seen this year’s Time Travel theme and we’ve got some great ideas related to that which we’ll share with you as we move forward – or backwards, depending on which way you’ve got your time machine set!

We do have some events set up already and we’re finalizing a few more. Please mark these on your calendar:

Meet & Greet: Tuesday, October 15th, 6 – 8pm

Pre-NaNo LARP: Saturday, October 19th, noon – 4pm

Kick-Off Party: Saturday, October 26th, 1 – 4pm

• Night Owl / First Push – details TBD

• Motown Midway Madness: Saturday, November 16, 10:30am – 4:30pm

• Boot Camp: Sunday, November 24th, 1 – 9pm

• One Last Push Party: Saturday, November 30th, noon-midnight

• TGIO Party: Sunday, December 1st, 1:30 – 4:30 pm

Looking forward to seeing everyone over the next few weeks!

Deadline Extended for the Missouri Review Editors’ Prize, Cash and Publication Opportunity

The deadline for the 29th Jeffrey E. Smith Editors’ Prize competition has been extended to OCTOBER 15, just ONE WEEK from today! We remain open for submissions in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. First-place winners in each category receive $5000, feature publication in our spring issue, and are honored at a gala reading and reception in Columbia, Missouri. Contest finalists are often published in the magazine also, or, in the case of poetry, as part of our Poem of the Week online feature. All entrants are considered for publication.

This opportunity is open to writers at all levels. We pride ourselves on focusing on the quality of the writing first and foremost—our allegiance is to finding and supporting strong work. Past winners have ranged from established writers with long records of publication to beginning writers who have never published before. In fact, for our fiction prize winner in 2018, the prizewinning story was her first published piece. This is why we are particularly excited to get the word out to Motown Writers Network. I’ve attached a flyer promoting the contest. We would love it if you would pass the word along via e-mail and social media, as well as posting the flyer somewhere your community is sure to see it.

We accept submissions online or by mail. The new postmark deadline is October 15. Winners will be announced in January of 2020.

You can find out more about the contest through our website.

This year we are offering two contest entry options. At the standard level ($25 to enter), entrants receive a year-long digital subscription to the Missouri Review ($24 value) as well as the third offering from TMR Books, Jason Brown’s collection of linked stories, A Faithful but Melancholy Account of Several Barbarities Lately Committed ($14.95 value). At the all-access level ($30 to enter), entrants receive the same year-long digital subscription and Brown’s collection, plus full access to our entire ten-year archive of value-added digital issues, complete with print and audio versions of the magazine.

Thanks very much for sharing news of this opportunity with your community. We look forward to reading your writers’ submissions!

All best,

Bailey Boyd, contest editor

Security Alert. Your accounts were compromised. You need to change password!

Hello!

I am a hacker who has access to your operating system.
I also have full access to your account.

I’ve been watching you for a few months now.
The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.

If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.
Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device.
This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.

I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence.

Why your antivirus did not detect malware?
Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent.

I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.
With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks.
I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use.

If you want to prevent this,
transfer the amount of $500 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: “Buy Bitcoin”).

My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 37Mym7ALzkTbypGR2ZDUnuxVUFDVCNk88f

After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again. I give you 50 hours (more than 2 days) to pay.
I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.

Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address. I do not make any mistakes.

If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed.

Best regards!
