Talk tomorrow,




  1. I just mailed my registration today —- can’t wait for the conference!!! Looking forward to another fantastic time learning and networking plus reconnecting with my writer pals — and making new friends, too!


  2. Disappointed to find out that the one day option was removed. I really enjoyed that option the past 3 years. Wondering why?


    • Chris, We had to find another hotel and the only way to keep the cost down with the hotel was to sign a contract for one price. I could have played a guessing game and tried to make a one day price, but then I would have had to jack up the price of the conference to cover the guess. We don’t have any wiggle room.

      • Okay, I understand. Thanks for letting me know.
