When planning your travel, keep in mind the stand alone events that take place on Thursday Evening.
Held on Thursday night, the eList dinner has become a first-night conference institution. The venue is usually within walking distance of the conference hotel, the meal affordable, the mood informal and (dare we say) loud. Look for details on the RomAus loop in July.
The Sunday fundraiser for charity has become a feature of RWA Conferences. This year is no different.
To donate, please email Enisa at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: no eftpos or credit facilities are available, so it will be cash only.
The onsite bookstore will be provided by Rosemary's Romance Books and will be open on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of conference. Stock will include writing and reference books, plus fiction by guest speakers and local authors.
If you want to have your books in the bookstore, please contact our Bookstore Liaison on email@example.com
For buyers, we recommend buying 3kg Express Post Satchels (white and red) and sending the books home. That way you don't pay excess luggage!
See more information on the Bookstall page.
Each year, members get to vote on the year's best covers. More details on how to enter your cover is to come.
See the instructions at the Cover Contest page.
RWA members who are first-time conference registrants are invited to join the First Timers Forum for assistance, information and to meet other writers prior to conference.
Join the forum here.
As is tradition, raffles would be conducted during the weekend. So bring your spare change!
