May I bring a guest to the annual conference? Writers and nonwriters alike can enjoy the Annual Florida Writers Conference weekend

September 14, 2014

For some, the conference is a change of pace—a way to get away from our routines and to focus on our passion: writing. And maybe we want to share the experience with our nonwriting friends.


No problem.


There’s plenty for nonwriters to do. Orlando is a great city, where they’ll find Disney World, Sea World, Cape Canaveral, Universal Studios, shopping galore, and several beaches. Some things are close to the hotel, and some require a little driving, but all are convenient. The hotel has a fitness center, swimming pool, free Wi-Fi, and other amenities. Guest Services can give you information on other destinations, as well. Your nonwriting guests will not be bored.


And if you want to see your nonwriting friends at meals, that’s doable, too. You may purchase individual guest meals at Registration and receive a badge your guest may use for admittance to whatever meal(s) you purchase. (To attend workshops, however, a guest would need to register for the conference. And, yes, it’s okay for them to register for one day.)

The big event, of course, is the Awards Banquet on Saturday, where among other things, we’ll announce the winners of the Royal Palm Literary Award competition. This is a gala event, which this year has a Hollywood theme, so it will be fun. And exciting.


There’s a catch, though. Seating for the Awards Banquet is limited, and tickets are selling quickly. Once capacity is reached (and we’re getting close), we will have to close the Banquet-only option on the shopping cart. We apologize for any inconvenience. The good news is that next year the conference will move to larger quarters and have a larger Banquet area.


We hope you and your guests enjoy the conference. Any questions, as always, can be directed to See you there!
