The planning and behind the scenes work for Wine Country Writers’ Festival 2023 is well underway.
The 3rd Annual WCWF Writing Contest Opens at noon on March 29 and closes on June 30, 2023
So mark that calendar and get those stories done.
Here are some pix of past winners!
Remember if you were a first place winner in 2022, your registration for this year is waived. Remember to still fill in the registration form when it opens though so we have your name etc. for the badges and such.
Which of course leads right into REGISTRATION.
Can you believe that we’re going into our third year already?
Plan to be with us for
September 22/23/24, 2023 at the Lakeside Resort and Conference Centre. Blocks of rooms have been put aside. Please ask for the Festival Rate.
Plan your weekend. Friday we will start around 3:30, then full day Saturday, and until mid to late afternoon (start and end times will be specified by registration opening. This is just to give you an idea so you can plan.)
Registration will open noon May 31, 2023 with the Early Bird Registration being $189.
At midnight of August 01, 2023, the Registration will increase to $219.
We have many exciting and dynamic presenters coming to share their stories and knowledge with us, and some exciting new programing too.
Make sure you following the Newsletter if you’re not already.
Can you believe it’s almost the end of October? Time flies. I hope you’re all writing up a storm and of course getting ready for NaNo!
I wanted to update you on the Athens, Greece Retreat in case you missed the newsletter.
The retreat is in April 2023 but in order to secure venue price etc. we’ll need to have registration and a $1000can deposit no later than November 30, 2022.
This can be paid in cash or by credit. The contact info is all HERE
If on November 30, there aren’t a minimum of 15 people committed to going, then the coordinators (myself and Jim) will determine if the trip is still possible from a financial standpoint. If not, deposits will be returned and the retreat cancelled.
Don’t delay. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll answer all your questions OR directly contact the professional booking agent.
The agent will be collecting all the funds and will also be able to book your flight from wherever you need. It is hoped that most flights can be coordinated so that we can all meet at Athens, Greece airport together.
