Sign up post for WriterConUK 2012Dates:
Friday May 25th to Sunday May 27th 2012Venue:
Ramada Hotel, The Butts, Coventry City Centre.Membership Cost:
This is £5.00 more than the cost for the past couple of years. This will reduce the number of attendees required for viability by 5 people. Otherwise, if the enforced change of date lowers the numbers attending by even 2 or 3, it puts the event in doubt. Should there be more people than usual we will use any spare money to add extras to the goodie bags, or buy drinks for Saturday dinner, or similar.Programme:
Quiz/Icebreaker, Goodie Bags and Introductions on Friday evening.
A full day of talks and workshops by fanfic writers, fan vidders, and fan artists, on Saturday, followed by socialising, and supper.
More socialising, drawing of the raffle, and AGM on Sunday morning.Intended Audience:
Anyone currently involved with, or wishing to become involved with, the creative side of any fandom as a writer, vidder, artist, beta or reader/reviewer. All levels of experience welcome.Accommodation:
Members will be responsible for booking their own accommodation.
Details of accommodation at the venue are:
Group rate of £65 per night for single occupancy, including breakfast, or, £75 per night per room, including breakfast, for two sharing a twin room.

You may register now, by commenting to this post, without paying just yet – last call for payments will be a month before the event – but we are likely to start poking you before that if you haven’t paid up!
You may pay by cheque if you have attended in the past, or are known to the committee – this is simply because, as the treasurer, I will have to give you my off-line details so that you know where to post it.
Paying by PayPal - Paying via PayPal does not require that you have a PayPal account yourself. Click on the button at the end of this post and follow the links to pay by credit or debit card.
Unless you make your on-line name obvious from your Paypal payment details please be sure to use the private message function to contact curiouswombat
and let me know your real name, so that I can match the Paypal payment with your online identity. This is important, otherwise I will end up with a number of payments with no matching attendee, and a number of attendees without matching payments…
