How Much Is KidLitCon? Would You Believe . . . Free?
There’s been a change of plans.
That’s putting it mildly. In any case, I have some big news for you guys. Remember KidLitCon the yearly gathering of children’s literature and YA literature bloggers? It’s in its sixth year and it’s in New York City this time. Unlike previous years we haven’t been able to block out hotels for you guys, and the city’s expensive. Getting here’s expensive. Don’t even get me started about the food.
Well, some backing and forthing went down yesterday and the result is this: While the PreCon will still cost the minimal $35 without dinner and $55 with (a steal in this town), the Saturday conference (awesome keynote speaker announcement to be announced very soon) is free.
The New Money:
Before September 21st:
- $35 Pre-Conference without dinner
- $0 Saturday Conference
- $55 Pre-Conference with dinner (special guest speaker: Grace Lin)
- $50 Friday dinner (extra diner or only)
I don’t think I can sweeten the pot any sweeter than this. You really don’t have any reason not to register now, do you? So head on over to the registration page and join us on Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th for KidLitCon 2012.
