Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop

Registration for the Oct. 20-22 Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop* at the University of Dayton is open, and seats are available. Register here.

The cost is $499 with the opportunity to laugh 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: Pitchapalooza, billed as “American Idol for books, only kinder,” and a closing night attendee stand-up comedy show hosted by Wendy Liebman.

The registration fee includes three dinners, two lunches, two continental breakfasts (and snacks!). A bonus: All registrants for the in-person workshop will receive complimentary access to the virtual keynote/Pitchapalooza package. For those interested in the virtual option only, the cost is $79. Register here.

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