If you live farther away or decide to make the conference a mini vacation (especially since Friday evening’s meet-and-greet reception with presenters, editors, and agents begins at 8:45 p.m., after Jenny Cote’s first keynote address), you may wish to reserve a hotel room.

*Registration and attendance required. Winning entries will be announced on September 22. See the submission and eligibility guidelines.

**If you’re reserving a room through the W2I discount, you must specify at the time of reservation that you’re requesting a room “with the Write2Ignite meeting at North Greenville University group rate” to get this rate.
