Important Write Stuff Deadlines!

As we approach The Write Stuff 2010, now only a month away, there are important deadlines you should be aware of. The first is in two days:

Thursday, February 25

  • Last registration postmark for the Early Bird discount.
  • Last day for $85/night group rate for a room at the Four Points Sheraton.
  • Last day to submit your first page for Bill Kent's "Start a Fire on Page One" workshop (you were informed if you were successfully enrolled).
  • Conference cancellations are now subject to a $50 processing fee.

Friday, March 12
  • Last registration postmark for mail-in registration for the conference at the full $135 rate.
  • Last registration postmark for mail-in registration for the James Frey two-day pre-conference workshop, "How to Plot Like the Pros," at the same low rate of $115. 
  • No refunds for conference or pre-conference workshop after this date.


  1. I just sent out my form in the mail box, 9:00pm Feb 25th, is that okay?

  2. Unless your post office is open until midnight you might be out of luck. To get the Early Bird price the registration has to be postmarked Feb. 25. Our conference has grown in esteem over the years but I fear we still don't command the kind of respect from the post office that the income tax deadline does. I'm sure if added funds are needed our registrar will be in touch. Good luck!
