One ticket for the in-person 2024 Atlanta Self-Publishing Conference on Saturday April 27th, 2024 from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. taking place at the Georgia State Univesity Dunwoody campus at 2101 Womack Road, Dunwoody, GA 30338. Please note that there is no virtual option for this event, so only purchase a ticket if you have secured transportation for yourself to arrive on site to attend the conference in person.
We'll be using your email address to find you on the Atlanta Writers Club list of members in good standing. If you use a different email address from the one connected to your membership, you won't be provided access to the Perk Page or any other benefits that come with being an AWC member. This email address is likely the same one where you receive your eQuill newsletter every month. If you have questions about your membership status, contact the Atlanta Writers Club at https://atlantawritersclub.org/contact/.
I understand that I am responsible for entering the email address that is connected to my current AWC membership account and that, if I don't do so, I will not be invited to access the Perk Page.
There is no virtual option for this event. This means that, if you would like to attend, you must do so in person in Dunwoody, Georgia on April 27th, 2024. If you live outside of Georgia or more than an hour away from Dunwoody, Georgia, we strongly encourage you to make sure you have adequate primary AND backup transportation to be able to get to the conference. If you do not have transportation options readily available to you, please wait to register until you are certain you will be able to get to the venue on the date of the conference and will have a place to stay once you arrive if you are staying overnight.
I understand that the ASPC takes place on-site in Dunwoody, Georgia and that I will need to coordinate my own transportation and lodgings on the day of the conference if I do not live near Dunwoody, Georgia.
We need to be able to easily send you important updates about the conference in case there are significant changes (alterations to the schedule, for example). To do this, all registrants are added to a registrant email list. You will get a confirmation email from us through Mailerlite. You can confirm your email there and you will be added to our list. Be sure to check your spam folder after you register for the conference, since the email may land there. We strongly encourage you not to unsubscribe from these emails so that you don't miss out on important program changes. If you do unsubscribe before the conference ends, you will be responsible for missing any information that was distributed via the registrant email list.
I understand that I should confirm my email for the registrant email list as soon as possible and that I should not unsubscribe from that list until the conference is over.

I am not an AWC member and will not receive the additional benefits of registration that AWC members receive.
Though this form has been embedded into this registration page for your convenience, once you submit your answers to these 12 questions, they will be sent to a folder with other sets of answers that do not include any identifying information such as your name or email address. This way, we're able to put everything together on a single page, but your survey answers are housed separately from your registration information so that you can feel free to answer honestly knowing that your responses are anonymous.
