Write, Publish, Sell Writers' Conference. Ideas. Future Plans!

I rarely do last-minute and super local posts here. But this one isn't really local because next year all authors can participate by having their book displayed for only $5. AND, look at some of the "stuff" this book fair does to make it more attractive to readers and authors! If you live in or anywhere near Melbourne, Fl, you don't want to miss it, either!

See You on Sunday!

This will once again confirm your registration for the Writers' Conference: Write, Publish, Sell! to be held on April 22, 2018, at the Hilton Melbourne Rialto, 200 Rialto Pl, Melbourne FL 32901 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

1. Check-in begins at 8:30 AM. Speakers and vendors will pick up their packets in the lobby assisted by our Conference Ambassador, Ash McGrath. Vendors will find their assigned tables in Ballroom C
2. Participants will find their packets at the Welcome Table arranged from A-L and M-Z. Please take your packet and initial the check-in list.

3. The door prize, Writer's Block, will be awarded at 4:00 PM in Ballroom C. You must be present to win. Our keynote speaker, Scott Tilley, Ph.D., will present, Writing to Live at 4:05. 

4. Please join in the genre discussion groups to share your experiences and expertise with others. We encourage you to attend as many of the presentations as possible. A conference is primarily an educational event, networking and book sales are a plus!

These books and Tee-shirts are donated to the Brevard Federation of Teachers Retiree Chapter. Tee-shirts are also available for $10.00 for the young readers in your life!

6. Please invite those book lovers you know to come and meet you and other authors and vendors at the Writers' Conference. Time to send out those email blasts, blogs and posts to family and friends is now!

7. All vendor tables have been reserved. On-site registration is always available the morning of the conference. The fee is $60.00. On-site registrations will be completed with assistance from our Conference Hostess, Kandi Siegel.

for news and events of interest to local authors and to share your news!

9. For your comfort, we suggest you bring a sweater or jacket. Food is available at the hotel restaurant. They also have a Starbucks snack bar. There are many fast food places close by on Rte. 192 and on Babcock Street. Free parking is available on the side and front areas of the hotel.
