Can I attend your conference if I don’t write romance?
Either airport will work, though we generally recommend you fly into O’Hare Airport rather than Midway.
- Distance to O’Hare International Airport (ORD): 20 minutes, 17 miles
- Distance to Midway International Airport (MDW): 25 minutes, 24 miles
The hotel does not offer a shuttle service from the airport, so we suggest you either rent a car or call a cab or Uber.
- American Taxi (847-253-4411)
- All Star Cab & Shuttle (888-533-4240)
Thank you for volunteering. We can’t run the conference without our volunteers! We will email your assignment and responsibilities in mid to late March.
I signed up to pitch. Am I guaranteed a pitch appointment? How many pitch appointments do I get?
Our goal is to give ONE pitch appointment to everyone who wants one, but with over 150 registrants requesting to pitch to our eleven agents and editors, we cannot guarantee everyone an appointment. Pitches are assigned in the order we receive registration and payment.
When will the workshop schedule be posted?
We expect to finalize the schedule in mid-March, at which time we will post it on our website.
Our book signing event is free and open to the public. Books will need to be purchased onsite or brought in.
What should I wear to the Saturday Gala dinner?
The Gala Dinner on Saturday night is semi-formal. Jeans are too casual, a ballgown is too formal. A festive dress, a cute suit, or a cocktail dress would be perfect.
I registered for Spring Fling but something came up. How do I cancel my registration?
