For those who prefer to use LJ, there is also a sign-up post here.

Edit: Some people have had a problem booking a room at our special rate, but we've spoken to the hotel and all is sorted! Note that you do need to book by phone rather than online.

Friday 7th September to Sunday 9th September

Ramada Hotel, The Butts, Coventry, CV1 3GG

Membership Cost: £42.
This covers room hire, refreshments during breaks (including tea, coffee, pastries and cookies!) on Saturday and on Sunday morning, a private room for the Saturday evening buffet (but not the cost of the buffet itself, nor of other meals) and a GOODY BAG!

Friday: Introductions, quiz, goody bags and socialising.
Saturday: A full day of talks, workshops and a craft session, followed by more socialising and the buffet.
Sunday morning: More talks, the AGM, the raffle, even more socialising... and goodbyes :-(

Members are responsible for booking their own accommodation. [personal profile] gillo and [personal profile] hab318princess have arranged a special rate, so just mention that you're attending the Writercon event. The price is £70 per night for a single room and £80 for a double, and includes a breakfast buffet (where you can choose anything from a full English breakfast to fruit and yogurt). Car parking is free as a special favour to us.

As usual, there will be optional alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, and an optional Friday evening trip to the Lebanese restaurant, Aqua.


Please, unless you really can't avoid it, don't wait until the last minute to sign up.

At last year's AGM, members voted to increase the membership fee to by £5 to £42 to cover increased costs. Financially, however, we will still need 19 people to ensure that we can pay for the venue, plus wine and goody bags. Last year, and the year before, we had a scare, and for a while we thought we'd have to cancel the event. This year, we'll be posting reminders on LJ and Dreamwidth, and sending out emails, [personal profile] hils will be promoting us on social media as usual, and we'll generally be chasing you a bit. At the AGM we discussed setting a cut-off date ("Sign up by such-a-date or it's off") but no one can decide on a sensible date, so please sign up as soon as you can! You can pay nearer the time.
