Attend 2010 Conference; Get a CD of Every Session

You’ll receive an added bonus when you register for the 2010 conference: a CD that includes a recording of every single session, keynote speech, workshop, and continuing class. What a deal!

A couple of years ago, I purchased a CD of a writers’ conference I attended for $100, and it was well worth the investment. I still listen to those workshops on my MP3 player whenever I go for a walk or go rollerblading (I love multi-tasking, and what’s better than learning while working out?).

At the 2009 conference, I was busy teaching, so I didn’t get to attend several workshops that sounded interesting. Then I got sidetracked and forgot to buy CDs of those workshops.

So getting a free CD of the entire conference is a deal I won’t pass up.

You may be wondering: What’s the catch? This sounds too good to be true.

There’s only one small requirement, which is that you are a full-time registrant. Doesn’t matter when you register – you’ll still get the CD. On your registration form, check the box that says, “Complete Conference Tuition.”

There are several options from which to choose:
  • Complete Conference Tuition, without meals or lodging - $465
  • Complete Conference Tuition, with meals but no lodging - $625
  • Complete Conference Tuition, with double room (1 roommate) and meals - $775
  • Complete Conference Tuition, single occupancy and meals - $975
  • Teen Track Special (ages 13-19), includes complete conference tuition, food, and lodging - $450
If you register by December 24, 2009, you’ll get a $20 discount off your fees.
If you pay by check or money order, they’ll lop off another $10.

To guarantee your spot, you can submit your $150 deposit now, and pay the balance by February 9, 2010. So start saving your pennies now, folks. This is one conference you won’t want to miss!

Here's a PDF of the 2010 registration form.

  1. Oh WOW this is amazing. Praise the Lord!

    I'm so excited to see things start to move now.

  2. Wow, what a great idea -- I always love ordering session CDs.

    It sounds like things are beginning to shape up, which is fun to watch. Can you tell us anything about Wednesday's "Afternoon with a master instructor" yet?

  3. Shirley,

    I think this is a great development, as well. It's also fun to be part of the inner workings of a writers' conference -- it's amazing how their team gets everything in place so many months in advance of the conference. I'll keep you posted on all the latest developments.

    Preliminary info on "Afternoon with a master instructor" is in the July 30 post. I'll have more details for you once I have a chance to chat with each of the instructors.


Chime in!
