Friday September 15th to Sunday 17th September
Ramada Hotel, The Butts, Coventry, CV1 3GG
Membership Cost: £39.
This covers room hire, refreshments on Saturday and on Sunday morning, a private room for the Saturday evening buffet (but not the cost of the buffet itself, nor of other meals) and a GOODY BAG!
Friday: Introductions, quiz, goody bags and socialising.
Saturday: A full day of talks and workshops by fanfic writers, fan vidders, and fan artists, followed by more socialising and the buffet.
Sunday morning: More talks, the AGM, the raffle, even more socialising... and goodbyes :-(
Members are responsible for booking their own accommodation. gillo has once again arranged a special rate, so just mention that you're attending the Writercon event. The price is £70 for a single room and £80 for a double, and there will be a 15% discount for members on all food and drink charged to your room over the weekend! Car parking is free as a special favour to us. (The hotel does not own the car park).
There will be cocktail menus and a Friday evening trip to the Lebanese restaurant, Aqua, with sign-up sheets, as usual.
