#NWC20 and COVID-19

18 March 2020

Dear #NWC20 Attendees,

Although our Novel Conference in Pasadena is still more than 7 months away, we know concerns about COVID-19 are growing and we want to reassure you that we are closely monitoring the situation.

Many places in the U.S. now encourage social distancing and the minimization of large gatherings over the next several weeks in order to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus. We remain hopeful that these measures will work and that our conference will go on as planned.

We’re still looking forward to offering you the best writing instruction, inspiration, and publishing advice on October 22-25, 2020 at the Westin Pasadena, but we’ll also be developing contingency plans over the next several weeks should the situation necessitate an alternative approach.

If necessary, you’ll be able to cancel your reservation without penalty by September 1, 2020 by which time we’ll all have a much better sense of what’s happening.

For the most current updates, keep an eye out for future emails, follow @WritersDigest on Twitter, and bookmark this page which we’ll be updating regularly.

– The WD Team
