Registration Fees: PAY WHAT YOU CAN

Because this will be a Spring Conference like no other, following 12 months like no other, we invite you to pay whatever registration fee makes you comfortable.

Each registration option (see below) will list a suggested fee, but registrants will be able to choose their own amount. Amounts paid above the suggested fee will be considered tax-deductible donations, and will be used to cover conference costs.

Day-of registration will not be available. You must register in advance.

Registration Options:

  • Master Class (Thursday & Friday, April 22 – 23)
    Choose One: _ Creative Nonfiction _ Fiction _Poetry
    Suggested Fee: $50
  • All-Day Conference (Saturday, April 24)
    Suggested Fee: $100

You can join the Network when you register:

$80 standard 1-year membership
$60 reduced membership (senior 65+, full-time student, writers under 30, writers with disabilities)
$140 2-year membership
$110 2-year reduced membership
$140 household 1-year membership


Scholarships are unnecessary for a conference whose registration fee is “pay what you can.” Can you pay $5? $1? $0? Cool, come join us.


Cancellations must be made in writing and arrive at the Network office (via USPS or e-mail) by 4:00 pm, Thursday, April 15, for you to receive a refund, less 25 percent. Send request to ed@ncwriters.org
