REGISTRATION INFO:

Here are a few important things for you to be aware of before you register:

 

--  Our online registration system accepts payment via PayPal; if you would prefer to pay by check please send payment to the Northwest Independent Editors Guild at 7511 Greenwood Ave N, #307, Seattle, WA 98103. Please note "Conference" on the check or on an enclosed note and include your email address so the administrator can contact you for any further information.

 
--  In order to register, please click the purple "Register" button at the bottom of this info form.
 
-- Cancellations on or before August 26, 2017, will receive a full refund of registration fees, minus a $15 processing fee. Cancellations made between August 26 and September 16 will receive a 50 percent refund. Cancellations made after September 16 will not receive a refund unless it is an emergency situation.
 
--  Due to a technical limitation with our registration system, we ask that you please register for only one ticket per transaction. This will ensure that you get your proper discounts, and that we have full information for each attendee.
 
--  This year, we are throwing an optional after party directly following the conference. The location of this party is still TBD, but it will be at a location close to Bastyr, and appetizers and alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages will be served. To account for space rental and food costs, there is an added $10 charge to attend the after party. To register for that now, please be sure to select "Conference + Party" from the ticket drop down at registration. There will be other opportunities later to register for this as well.
 
--  Please be aware that you can only use one coupon/discount code per transaction
 
--  If you use a coupon/discount code, be sure to hit "apply" next to the code so that it is included in your transaction!

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:

The Northwest Independent Editors Guild has hosted an editing conference in Seattle every other year since 2007. As the conference has grown along with the Guild, we’ve added more sessions to cover a broader range of topics, and are now recognized as one of the top editing conferences in the country.

ABOUT THE LOCATION:

The Red Pencil conference returns to the campus of Bastyr University this year. Located about 10 miles northeast of Seattle along the edge of Saint Edward State Park, Bastyr offers an onsite medicinal herb garden and a stone reflexology foot path for conference attendees to explore during breaks.

We are thrilled to hold our 2017 opening and closing sessions in Bastyr’s Chapel, giving us more flexibility to host a larger number of attendees and vendors.
