Details of the August 2013 Event for non-community members.

Because the sign-up post contains a lot of detail in the comments, it is locked to community members only. Now joining the community in no way commits you to coming to any of the events - but if anyone is pimping the August event in their own journal it makes sense for the info to be available un-locked.

So - this is both a reminder of the upcoming event for community members and also a post to which you can link others!

WriterConUK Event 2013.


Friday 9th August to Sunday 11th August


Ramada Hotel, The Butts, Coventry City Centre.

Membership Cost: £35.

This covers our room hire, refreshments on Saturday and Sunday morning and Saturday afternoon, our private room for Saturday evening dinner (but not the cost of that dinner or other meals) and, of course GOODY BAGS.


Full programme will be available closer to the dates, but in outline you can expect; Quiz/Icebreaker, Goody Bags and Introductions on Friday evening.

A full day of talks and workshops by fanfic writers, fan vidders, and fan artists, on Saturday, followed by socialising, and supper*.

More socialising, drawing of the raffle, and AGM on Sunday morning.

A special cocktail menu will be available at the bar just for us, as last year.

*Saturday evening buffet, £19 a head, menu broadly similar to last year's choice of three mains, one without meat or fish, sides, and a choice of two or three sweets. Suggestions from anyone with particular likes/dislikes/allergies could be forwarded to the people in charge.
We should be able to provide wine/pop/juice to accompany the meal at no extra charge.
