Registration - Write on the Sound

2019 online registration opens July 16. 

The date, and a link to the online form, will be posted in the spring with the conference schedule announcement.


Registration information

  • Attendees are required to select sessions at the time of registration. You are required to select one session from each time block in the schedule for the days you are attending. Please review the Conference Schedule before you begin registration. 
  • Waitlists are available on a first come, first served basis after the conference sells out. We do not offer waitlists for individual Saturday and Sunday sessions. Call 425-771-0228 during regular business hours (PDT) for information or to be placed on a wait list.
  • Registration is processed by Cvent, an event management software company. Make a note that "Cvent*WOTS" will appear on your bank/credit card statement.
  • You may pay by check. You are required to provide a check number and payment must be received within two weeks of registration.
  • It is always best to register for the conference before booking travel. We understand prices for flights vary and that attendees want to take advantage of best possible rates when available. But, you do not want to be left with a flight you cannot ultimately use. If the conference is sold out, you can be placed on a wait list, but we cannot give priority to those who purchased flight or train tickets before registering for the conference. 

A $15 processing fee will be charged on all refunds prior to August 31
No refunds on registrations after August 31
No refunds on box lunches, contest entries or manuscript critique appointment fees
