Aussie #WriteClub FINALLY!

Hello WriteClub-ers!

Today we’d like to introduce you to the newest members of the Crew,

Rochelle (@RochelleSharpe) and Emily (@TheLoonyTuney)!

They both live in Eastern Australia, and are going to be taking the WriteClub reins from 7pm-midnight Sydney time. what does that mean for you? Well, do the math. 7pm Sydney time is midnight US Pacific. Sooo…

…that’s a lot of WriteClub.

For anyone NOT in NSW, AU, the Aussies will be writing during THESE TIMES:

UK: 8am-1pm

US East: 3am-8am

US West: 12am-5am

There will be a gap between the Aussie’s time slot and the UK starting up, but we can manage that, right? It’s just more time for you guys to write!

We’re definitely excited to see how this works out, and crossing our fingers for great things to come in 2014! See y’all on Friday!
