This year the annual writing conference will be held July 1 – 8 at Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley MA. We are in the process of securing a dorm with a limited number of air-conditioned rooms available, but need to give the venue an idea of the number and gender breakdown of those willing to pay a reasonable premium for those rooms. Accordingly, if you are planning to attend, and would like to be in a drawing to secure an AC room, please email Peter Klank at firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Wally AC Lottery” in the subject line. Please include your full name in the text, along with your intention to attend and desire for an AC unit. Further information and rates can be found at THE 2017 CONFERENCE, or email Peter with any questions.
