Registration for the 2017 HNS Conference, June 22-24

in Portland, OR, is now closed.



Here’s what comes with your conference registration ($475 for members, $550 for nonmembers): access to two full days of program sessions (Friday and Saturday); an opening reception Thursday evening with hors d’oeuvres; breakfasts and lunches on Friday and Saturday; and a banquet dinner on Saturday night followed by a party with lessons on whist and English country dance. It’s a full agenda, to say nothing of optional (at extra cost) preconference workshops on Thursday, a Hooch Through History tasting event on Friday, and pitch sessions with agents and editors. Don’t delay! Some optional workshops and agent/editor pitch sessions are filling up fast.

Registration closes May 18th or when registration hits 500.
