2024 Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop Registration

Sold out! If you're interested in joining us, please put your name on our waitlist, and we will reach out when we have a cancellation. Join the waitlist here.

The $524 registration fee includes three dinners, two lunches, two continental breakfasts (and snacks!). Plus the opportunity to laugh, learn and be inspired by a spectacular slate of keynote speakers and accomplished faculty who will help you hone your craft, market your work and explore publishing paths.

Back by popular demand: a closing night attendee stand-up comedy show hosted by comedian Jane Condon. And new: for an additional $50 fee, we’re offering 15-minute one-on-one sessions for you to pitch your submission-ready work to a literary agent and receive professional insights. More information on these opportunities will be shared with attendees in January.

Payment may be made by credit card only, and full payment is necessary at the time of registration.

P.S. If you encourage a new writer to register for the spring workshop, we’ll put both of your names in a drawing to win an Erma-style "Thelma and Louise" gift bag — two Erma wine glasses, two coffee mugs, a selfie stick — and seats at a keynote meal with Erma’s kids. (Bail money not included.) After you both register, email your names to The winners will be announced at the workshop.
