Campbell Conference

Admission to the Campbell Conference is included in registration fees for the Workshops and Institute, but you must pay for your meal if you wish to eat dinner during the Conference Awards Banquet. If you are registering for a Workshop or Institute, please do not also click the check-box for the Campbell Conference — simply note your intent to attend the Conference in the Notes section at the bottom, and we’ll register you for that, as well. (Writing Retreat members register and pay for both Conference and Awards Banquet as normal.)
To eat dinner during the Awards Banquet, please check the "The Campbell Conference Awards Banquet Only" option above. To attend the Awards Ceremony but not eat the banquet, specify that in the Notes section so we can provide you with a seat for the event.
