Let's Just Write! An Uncommon Writers Conference is being rescheduled
to August 29-30, 2020.

Thank you for your support regarding our decision to reschedule the conference. 

Important action items for registered attendees:

  • If you have a hotel reservation we have alerted the hotel to cancel them all. You should double-check anyway to be sure. The Warwick Allerton phone number is 312.440.1500.
  • We have processed refunds on conference add-ons and additional dinners that were paid for. 
  • Our rescheduled dates are August 29-30, 2020. We hope you will stay with us a while longer as we continue to monitor the situation, but if you want a refund for any reason just send an email.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this unprecedented process.

We look forward to seeing you in August.
