Detailed registration information:

The conference registration fee is $375 through May 8, 2017; after that date it will be $410. This is our first increase in fees in five years.

The additional fee for the three one on-one critiques (of the same manuscript) is $50 and is available on a first-come first-served basis.  None of the critiques are available WITHOUT registering for the conference.  We do our best to satisfy requests for readers. Remember two of the readers are in the appropriate genre/track; the third reader can be either an editor OR an agent. Unless we have one that specifically indicates otherwise, poetry manuscripts are not read by agents or editors).

PLEASE NOTE: Extended critiques at $125 are available only if you are signing up for the shorter critiques (total of $175).  There are only twenty extended critiques available.

Registrants can only sign up for one set of short critiques and one extended critique. If you pay a second registration fee, we are happy to accommodate your request for additional critiques, but only for the short critiques and for a manuscript in a different genre. We do not allow a  second extended critique.

Not ALL of the guest faculty do critiques. CJ Box will not be critiquing, Jamie Ford will only be doing seven short critiques. ALL resident faculty read manuscripts.

Registration includes all events at the conference plus:

                  • An opening night reception
                  • A wine & cheese gathering
                  • The closing night buffet

If you are a parent or responsible adult, you can register for BOTH yourself and your teen writer! Critiques for each participant MUST be paid for separately. See guidelines and details below.

Parent + teen writer fee: $555, through early bird registration period, which closes May 16, 2017, when it goes up to $600.

Other Details: Breakfast and lunch are not included. We serve coffee and provide hot water for assorted teas on Friday and Saturday mornings of the conference. There are restaurants, cafes, and a grocery store/deli within walking distance. The conference center is wheel-chair accessible.

Pre-Conference Writing Workshop

The details of the workshop are being worked out and will be posted soon. Details on this great workshop will be under Program. The pre-conference writing workshop is separate from the Conference; you can sign up for this without attending the conference. The $150 pre-conference workshop is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 21. Enrollment in the workshop is limited to 15.

Other Information

Family members are welcome to attend the barbecue. Tickets are $20 and available at the conference.

Accommodations and travel costs are not included in the registration fee. Please make reservations early as Jackson Hole is a busy place in the summertime.

See you in June 2017!
