Florida Writers Youth Conference Canceled

We value our members, and your health and safety are of great concern to us. Due to COVID-19, the Delta variant, and the continuing increase in infections and hospitalizations, we have decided it is inadvisable to hold the Florida Writers Conference as planned in October.

Much volunteer time and effort had gone into conference planning, and you can be sure we share your disappointment. We look forward to a time when we can gather with our friends in person to learn and celebrate the writing life again.

We ask for your patience as volunteers process full refunds for conference registration fees, guest meals, interviews, and headshots, and we remind you to cancel your hotel reservations.

We are pleased to share that the winners of the Royal Palm Literary Awards will be announced in a virtual ceremony available to all free of charge on October 16, 2021, at 7 PM on Zoom. Stay tuned for more details. We look forward to celebrating with you online!
