Conference-Contest update

Well, it's finally here! SiWC14 began with a collection of wonderful Master Classes yesterday, and the conference itself begins this morning. A note to all contest entrants that the short-listed writers have all been notified and the winners will be announced this evening after the banquet. Thank you so much to all who entered -- see you next year!  On-site registration is still being accepted, so if you make a last-minute decision to attend, please come and join the fun! We've got more than 70 workshops, panels and events planned, pitch sessions and the blue pencil cafe are still booking and of course, Michael Slade's Shock Theatre late tonight is not to be missed. Hope to see you here in Surrey! ~kc   kcdyerContest Coordinatorkcdyer@siwc.casweetly tweeting @kcdyer
