Missed the Deadline to Register for the Annual Florida Writers Conference? Relax!

Okay, you were waiting to see how your schedule shook out. Or you procrastinated. Bottom line: if you recently hopped onto the FWA website to register for the 2014 Annual Florida Writers Conference, “Stars of Florida Writers,” you found the item—poof!—gone from the shopping cart! Ditto, signups for faculty interviews.

No worries. You may register onsite. Simply arrive a little early (say, 45 minutes) to allow us time to process your paperwork and create your conference badge. The Registration Desk is open Friday 6am-6pm, Saturday 7am-5pm, and Sunday 7am-9am.

We take cash, checks, or credit cards but not American Express. Limited interview appointments are available, so after you register at the Registration Desk, you may wish to move directly to the Interview Desk to make your appointments with faculty. Interviews are booked first-come, first-served. Also, big news! Currently, RPLA Banquet guest tickets are now open to all, so if you would like to bring a guest, please sign him or her up.

There are a bazillion new things this year—too many to recap here—but you may want to make note of the Twitter contest. Pure fun, no work: just tweet a status update, picture, or anything else related to the conference and include the tag #FWA2014, and you’ll have a chance to win a free mini-conference registration.

See you at the annual conference!
