What to Wear

Generally speaking, the conference is considered “business casual.”

However, when you’re scheduled for a meeting with an editor or agent, you may want to bump it up a notch.

You may also want to take a sweater/cardigan with you. Personally, I’m often cold so having one with me is almost mandatory. (And if you happen to leave it in a classroom and it’s not there when you get back, check at the registration desk…don’t ask how I know ;).)

The gala is “Sunday best” to formal. In other words, a bit more formal than the rest of the conference. You’ll find everything from Brandilyn in her sparkly dresses and Chip MacGregor in his formal kilt tuxedo to men in dress shirts and ties and women in Sunday dresses. Nice slacks with a pretty top works well, too :).
