·       Breakfast with the author is at Karrinyup Golf Club and numbers are limited to 50.
·       Concurrent sessions will also be capped so earlybirds will get their choice of sessions.
·       Each bus tour can take 48 people so you will need to book the tour that appeals to you (they are different).

Conference fees have been capped and are the same as the 2014 conference. WASLA members can also apply for a scholarship to attend the conference.

The SLCWA Committee looks forward to seeing you there.
