What does the Basic Level Pass include?

Your membership allows you attend all festival activities, including panels, presentations, workshops, readings, kaffeeklatches, blue pencil sessions and the expo (only exception is the banquet). You will receive conference publications with important updates and information.


What is a Unicorn Pass?

Our unicorns are giving and adored. In addition to attending all festival activities as in the Basic Level you will be donating a full weekend membership to someone who really needs the help! We'll be running a sponorship program and your membership will help someone attend who otherwise would be unable to.


What does a One Day Pass include?

Can't make it to the entire weekend of festivities? Can you join us for one day? Great! We have one day passes for Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Attend all the panels, presentations, workshops, blue pencils etc, offered on that day! Friday and Sunday are slightly shorter days than Saturday, so they're a bit less to purchase.


What does the banquet include?

The banquet is a catered dinner by the hotel on Saturday night and will also include an inspiring keynote speech. *Price for the banquet covers the hotel charge per person, plus payment processing fee. Note: Banquet tickets can be purchased in combination with the memberships, but is separate from the actual membership cost. You can attend just the festival or both


What is a Sponsored Pass?

Would you like to attend the festival but don't have the funds? The sponsored pass program has been created for those who could use financial help to attend the festival. The sponsored passes come from other pass holders who would like to help the writing community, our business partners who want to give back, as well as the festival itself. Apply here. We also hold a raffle for a free pass each year!
