Full Conference Registration Options:
Full REGISTRATION (Housing NOT INCLUDED)
We have opened up registration for early-bird enrollments for 2021 (20% off normal list price of $899)! This option allows attendees to find their own housing yet enjoy all that the LWC has to offer: seminars, readings, beach bonfire, shrimp boil, sunset receptions, and includes a workshop in a chosen genre. Seats are limited, so register today.
Full REGISTRATION (Housing INCLUDED)
We have opened up registration for early-bird enrollments for 2021 (15% off the normal list price of $1899)! This option provides lovely shared housing in local homes (at a steep discount given how expensive Seaside can be) as well as access to all that the LWC has to offer: seminars, readings, beach bonfire, shrimp boil, sunset receptions, and includes a workshop in a chosen genre. Seaside is known for the beautiful architecture and luxury, so know that we do everything to ensure quality accomodations (private room in beautiful homes with shared or private bathroom).
A La Carte Registration Options:
All-Access Conference PASS
This option provides access to all that the LWC has to offer: seminars, readings, beach bonfire, shrimp boil, sunset receptions, but does NOT include housing and does NOT include workshops or the option to have your work critiqued. This is perfect for those who just want to experience our conference and social events without the pressure of having writing evaluated in a writing workshop.
Seminar Access PASS
This option gives you access to ALL seminars (you get 8+ for the price of just over four) being offered by agents, writers, faculty over the course of the week. This is a perfect option for those who want to learn more about the craft of writing and the publishing industry, but who might not be able to attend all the evening events and are not interested in having their own creative writing critiqued in workshop.
Beach Bonfire and/or our Seafood Boil
Join us for food and drinks and community. Help us celebrate LWC at either (or both) of these major events! $59 each.

The small print: As a reminder, all payments for full enrollment with housing cannot be refunded after April 1st (it is likely that reservation will not be filled, which costs the conference substantial losses). We also cannot offer a refund for full registration without housing after April 10th (it is unlikely that we would be able to fill that workshop spot, which also costs us dearly). Thank you for being conscientious of this situation. There will be a service fee for refunds before that date ($200 for registrations with housing, $100 for registrations without housing and conference registration without workshops). All other sales are final. COVID-19 (and any and all full conference cancellations instigated by the LWC): we offer full refunds in the case of our conference being cancelled. All a la carte options are first-come, first-serve, but will remain open throughout the conference. All payments should go through our online portal if possible, and during the actual conference, we will be able to accept payment on
