WRW Holiday

The Washington Romance Writers Retreat, In the Company of Writers, is over four months away, but it’s not too soon to make plans to register. Mark your calendars for April 29-May 1, 2016, and then sign up on January 15, 2016, when registration opens to WRW members. Don’t take long to decide because we have a great line up and registration opens to RWA members on February 8 and non-RWA on February 15. Registration closes for all on March 16.

The Retreat for WRW members this year is $400 for double occupancy registration and $525 for a single room.  (IF YOU REQUIRE A SINGLE ROOM AT THE RETREAT, ACT QUICKLY. Single rooms sell out within the first 24 hours.)  RWA members will pay $450 and non-RWA $500 for double occupancy.
