2014 Registration

Registration is NOW OPEN!

SiWC Online Registration Site

Most of the answers to questions you may have about the conference can be found here on our website. Have a look at our conference pages for master class, workshop, and presenter bio information. Our price grid is below, with details about what’s included in each package.

If you’re planning to make pitch or blue pencil appointments, we recommend starting with our presenter bios to choose the people you’d most like to meet with before you start the registration process. Generally, all our editors and agents take pitch appointments and everyone else takes blue pencil. The one exception this year is that agent Kris Rothstein is also taking blue pencil appointments. The appointment schedule is updated in the registration system in real time as people book, so we are not able to tell you who’s available as this changes minute-to-minute. The available appointments at your time of registration will be shown on the second page of the registration form.

Already registered, but want to upgrade or add a master class to your registration? Have registration-specific questions for which you can’t find the answer? Please email registration@siwc.ca, and our conference administrator will connect with you. If you have additional questions, please check out our FAQ. If you don't find the answer there, contact us using this form: Contact Us.

Hotel bookings are separate from conference registration.
