Pricing

For the November 5-6, 2021 Atlanta Writers Conference, some participants might want to do only one activity while others want to attend just a few sessions and many participants want to take advantage of everything, so we offer a la carte pricing, with two all-activities package discount options.

Please note the following:

– You can register for one activity, several, many, or all of them–whatever suits your interests, availability, and budget.

– You can register for up to two manuscript critiques and/or up to two pitches without registering for any other activities. Then you can add a discounted third manuscript critique, a third pitch, a second query letter critique, and/or a second or third pre-conference edit by contacting Atlanta Writers Conference Director George Weinstein at awconference@gmail.com. See below for discount details.

– Payment is due via credit card, debit card, or PayPal at the end of the registration process. Failure to pay will result in the registration being cancelled. You must complete the registration and payment process within 60 minutes of starting in order for your registration to be recorded.

– A $50 registration fee will be added to the total amount for the conference activities you select unless you are a 2021 Atlanta Writers Club (AWC) member with dues paid through November 6, 2021. This registration fee is nonrefundable but will provide you with AWC membership for 365 days as a bonus.

– With the exception of the pre-conference edit–which is conducted via email–all activities will be in-person at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel, though some agents and editors will be virtual due to COVID concerns. For those participants who cannot travel due to COVID or another reason, the agents and editors can conduct the manuscript critiques, query letter critiques, and pitches via scheduled online Zoom meetings by contacting Atlanta Writers Conference Director George Weinstein at awconference@gmail.com to arrange this. The dates for these activities are listed below.

Conference Fees:

– Manuscript Critique on Saturday, November 6, with the acquisitions editor(s) and/or literary agent(s) of your choice and submission of your work due by October 4: $170 each for one or two confirmed spots/waitlists. There is no charge for waitlists unless there’s a cancellation that opens a spot for you. If you want to add a 3rd manuscript critique, the cost is only $150. Take advantage of this by contacting Atlanta Writers Conference Director George Weinstein at awconference@gmail.com after your initial registration.

– Pitch on Saturday, November 6, with the acquisitions editor/agent of your choice: $70 each for one or two confirmed spots/waitlists.

– The Conference Package “All Activities” option, which includes two manuscript critiques, two pitches, the query letter critique, pre-conference edit by a freelance editor, and the online workshop doubleheader: $620 (a $175 discount, because the pre-conference edit and the two Q&A panels are free in this case; if you choose the Conference Package “All Activities” option without the pre-conference edit, the price remains $620). NOTE: if you choose the Conference All-Activities Package and select any waitlist spots, there’s no charge for these, so your total payment will be based on the spots you pick where there are current openings; if spots open, you’ll pay for those individually. Contact Atlanta Writers Conference Director George Weinstein at awconference@gmail.com if you’d like to discuss your selections so he can confirm your actual total based on current manuscript critique and pitch availability and advise you about which agents/editors who are a good fit for you have the shortest waitlists.

Please see the Refund Policy for deadlines to cancel your registration for any activity in order to receive a partial refund.

Payment Processing:

The Atlanta Writers Club uses a secure PayPal portal to process your credit or debit card payments. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can enter your debit or credit card information and contact details instead. This will ensure a secure, worry-free transaction on the Internet. PayPal will send you a receipt regardless of whether you use a credit/debit card or a PayPal account to submit your payment.

You must pay online as part of the registration process in order for your registration to be recorded. Due to bounced checks and failures to pay prior to previous conferences, checks will not be accepted and grace periods for payment will not be granted.
