    ll conference events will take place at 1740 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest  Washington, DC 20036.

When you arrive, please head to the registration desk to pick up your packet, which will include a schedule, information about the locations of the breakout sessions, your super official conference badge thing, a map of some of the local food/lunch options, one ticket to “Speed Dating with Editors,” and a form to choose the book and literary magazine that you’d like to receive. If you’ve registered beforehand, your name will be on our list and we’ll have a packet ready for you.


    Lunch is on your own, and your registration packet will include a handout about the many various restaurants ready and willing to take your money and give you food.
