• Small group meetings with a speaker – at onsite registration, attendees will have the opportunity, on a first-come, first-served basis, to sign up for a 20-minute, small group meeting with one of our selected conference speakers or special guests. These meetings are not manuscript feedback sessions, and attendees should not expect the speakers to provide anything after the meeting. However it is a rare chance to have an informal, friendly chat with someone heavily engaged in the publishing world. Many of these meetings will be offered; however they will only be available while supplies last! So come to onsite registration early!
  • Open mic session – On Monday afternoon, attendees will have the opportunity (if they would like) to present a short excerpt of their writing to other conference attendees.  Each speaker will have 5 minutes, including their introduction and reading.  Each speaker will be limited to 5 minutes. Sign-up will be at onsite registration.
  • Bookstore – We are working to partner with a local bookstore to sell books from our conference speakers.
  • Book signings – We are working on books signings with several of the conference speakers.
