It’s Friday, July 31st which means the 2015 Chapter One Young Writers Conference is right around the corner! With only one week to go before the conference, it seemed like a good time to update you on a few things:
Special #Ch1Con Twitter Chat on Wednesday, August 5th at 9:30 PM Eastern
This coming Wednesday, we’ll be hosting a special Ch1Con Chat on Twitter to answer any sorts of questions you might have concerning the conference. Tweet using #Ch1Con to participate. (Can’t make the chat? Feel free to email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll answer them there instead!) Speaking of questions, lately the one we’ve been most getting is:
How many spots are still open for the conference?
This time last week, we would have told you two. However, we’ve since filled those, and made the decision to open up the optional ten bonus spots to attend the conference. Even with these newly opened seats, it’s looking like we have a chance of selling out, so make sure to register soon to ensure you get in.
Walk-Up Registration Info
Yes, if spots are still open, we WILL have walk-up registration this year. We’ll let you know for sure the night before the conference whether or not this will be happening. But if it does happen, here’s what you need to know:
- The cost to attend the conference based on a walk-up registration will be $74.99 (the same as our usual late rate for anyone registering in August).
- Walk-up registration will be open during the regular check-in time at the conference, from 8:30 to 9:00 AM.
- Please bring a credit or debit card if you’re registering in person. (We unfortunately cannot accept cash or checks for registrations.)
- If the conference fills up before it’s your chance to register, we will, unfortunately, have to turn you away. (Legally we can only allow forty people in the room. Sorry, that’s jut the way it is.)
Speaking of late rate registration: Today (the 31st) is your last day to register for just $49.99!
So, if you want to avoid paying an extra $25.00 for your conference registration, make sure to register before midnight tonight eastern time. Late rate begins at 12:01 AM, August 1st. (For info on how to register, check out www.chapteroneconference.com/register.)
Keep your eyes on the blog for more info coming throughout the week. We can’t wait to see you at Ch1Con 2015!
