Register Now for 2009 Fall Conference

Tomorrow (November 12) is your last day to pre-register at a reduced rate for the 2009 NCWN Fall Conference, November 20-22, in Wrightsville Beach.

You have until 5 p.m. tomorrow to register by phone at either 336.293.8844 or 919.251.9140.  You have until midnight tomorrow to register online at

If the renowned instructors, outstanding workshops, and lovely beach setting aren’t enough to entice you, maybe this year’s raffle prizes will be:

– For a $5 ticket, you get a chance to win a free three-day stay at the Westwinds Inn in Key West, or one of two gift certificates for a free one-night stay in any U.S. hotel (except in NYC) managed by Alliance Hospitality.

– For a $1 ticket, you could win a collection of books published by Novello Festival Press of Charlotte, a subscription to the Oxford American, or a subscription to Southern Cultures.

As always, Network members who register for the conference can make their books available for sale through the Network.  Just bring 10-12 copies with you to the Fall Conference, and bring them to the Member Book Sales table in the registration area.  The Network will sell your books on a consignment basis for the duration of the conference.  We will collect a 20% commission on each copy sold, and write you a check for your proceeds on Sunday.

Finally, on this Veterans’ Day, all of us in the Network would like to honor those of our members who served in our nation’s armed forces.  We thank you for your service to our country, and we hope that the Network has been of some small service to you as you tell your stories.  (And, to those members who served in the U.S.M.C., happy birthday to the Corps, albeit a day late.)
