The Annual Room Share Blog – 2019 Edition

Have a room at the hotel that you’d like to share with someone to save some money? Couldn’t get a room and would love to find someone who’s willing to share? This post is for you!

Please use the comments section to connect with potential roommates. We suggest posting whether you have or want a bed and for what nights, whether you have a gender preference for a roommate, whether you’re party animal or early-to-bed type, and any other relevant info like your terrible snoring or tendency to sleepwalk.

Remember, we provide this comment thread as a courtesy, but we don’t get involved in roommate arrangements, and many of the people involved are new to us, so we can’t vouch for them or take any responsibility for your room share experience. Please use your common sense and pay attention to your Spidey Senses.

That being said, some great connections have been made through this thread, with people finding new friends or critique partners, or simply enjoying the chance to share the quiet moments at the conference with someone who’s as excited as you are about writing.

Good luck!

    Hoping to share a room with someone with two queen/double beds. Will pay half. I am staying from Wednesday eve/Thursday check in until Monday. So I can keep the room for an extra day and cover that cost myself. 43 years old. I am a silent sleeper so no snoring please! And I have good hygiene!
