For Writers with Special Needs

The North Carolina Writers’ Network strives to make our programs and services accessible to all writers, including those with special needs. If you require conference materials either in large print or in Braille, or if you require a sign-language interpreter, please register for the conference and submit your request to mail@ncwriters.org no later than October 28. If you require any other special assistance, please let us know as soon as possible at mail@ncwriters.org. We will do our best to accommodate all reasonable requests.


In an effort to save money, time, and resources, the Network will send to all 2022 Fall Conference registrants, exhibitors, and faculty an E-Packet, prior to November 18. The E-Packet will contain all the usual conference packet materials, in the form of a PDF that registrants can print or download to bring with them to the conference.

Name tags, personalized schedules, and copies of the Schedule-at-a-Glance still will be available at the registration table the day of the conference.

We will not provide traditional printed packets at this year’s Fall Conference.
