 Schedule of Sessions


Choose just one session or attend them all, you don’t have to miss a thing.

Some sessions are FREE!

Most sessions are only $15.00 each!

*Submission Opportunity! By registering for a paid session with an acquiring faculty member, you will have the opportunity to submit to this specific agent/editor. Information with details for the acquiring faculty will be sent to attendees after the session is held.
Sessions will be recorded for limited playback by those registered for the session within 7 days of the session. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY ANY ATTENDEE CAPTURE AND RECORD ANY OF THE ONLINE SESSIONS. Not only would this infringe on the presenter’s intellectual property, but to the extent that any presenter reads from example texts, it would be a copyright violation for which there are extensive civil penalties.
