SiWC 2021 Registration is OPEN. Registration will CLOSE OCTOBER 15.

You will be directed to our secure payment website

SiWC will be virtual again for 2021. Join us for SiWC at Home.

The pandemic has continued to make things difficult for many. We will once again be offering a pay-what-you-can option for the main conference when you register for SiWC at Home to ensure no one who wants to attend is unable to do so because of finances.

Registration will be limited (not quite as much as the in-person conference) to help us achieve the sense of community that’s such an important part of SiWC.

Our price for this year, as ever, is set to cover our costs. It’s lower than our in-person conference because some of our costs are lower, such as not having to pay for the hotel.

Conference Package


3-Day Full Conference Package

Includes three days of workshops, keynotes, social opportunities, special events and more from October 22-24 PLUS pre-conference WXR at SiWC events October 18 and 19. (A sliding scale will be offered at registration.)


Master Classes (October 20th and 21st)

Conference registrants (per 3-hour class)
Non-registrants (per 3-hour class)
EARLY BIRD MASTER CLASS PACKAGE: available until October 19 for conference registrants ONLY: register for ALL of this year’s live and recorded master classes for last year’s price. (Note that you will only be able to attend some in real time due to concurrent scheduling; recordings of the rest will be available to you for 30 days after the conference.)

$869 (for 11 classes!)




If you would like to add master classes at the attendee rate AFTER you have already registered for the conference, please email Jen at to do this. Our system will charge you the non-attendee rate if you do it yourself, but we are happy to help.

Please note that we will not be offering pitch and blue pencil appointments this year.
