Please carefully check the registration page for cancellation cut-off dates and fees.
How can I get more involved in the conference?
Find out about volunteering for the conference, suggesting presenters or presenting yourself on our Get Involved page.
How should I dress?
Dress in layers; some rooms are hot, some are cold.
Friday nights are for themed costumes, if you choose.
The only formal night is the Saturday Night Banquet, but you are welcome to look terrific at any time.
I can only come for a day. Which should I choose?
Check the workshop page to find the best day for you.
Friday and Saturday are longer days, as the conference wraps up after lunch on Sunday.
I have food allergies. How can I get a safe meal?
Please alert us to your allergies and dietary restrictions well ahead of time by sending an email to conference coordinator Kathy Chung at email@example.com.
Special meals requested less than five  days before the conference opens will be subject to additional fees passed on to us from the hotel.
Is the conference venue wheelchair accessible?
Yes. Elevators are available to take you from Parking to the Lobby, and also to the upper floor where the workshops are held.
Is there an age limit for the conference?
We're here for writers from 15 to 150; we don't care what your age is!
Very few workshops have adult content, and if your teen has your approval to attend, we're fine with it.
Please note, however, there is no individual supervision available for under 18's.
We encourage young writers to attend in groups or with teachers — contact Conference Coordinator Kathy Chung for details.
We offer a special deal for writers under 18 to attend on the Friday of our conference, which coincides with a province-wide Professional Day, and our Tan Seagull scholarship is aimed at young writers.
Is the writing contest open only to writers attending the conference?
