Love in Isolation 2020 – Registrations Open!

Registrations for RWA’s 2020 Virtual Conference – Love in Isolation are now open! Taking place over five days from Wednesday 12 to Sunday 16 August, the online conference includes 31 sessions and over 40 hours of content. Tickets cost $150 (plus GST) for members and $250 (plus GST) for non-members.

Covid-19 travel restrictions and border closures meant that the in-person conference, due to be held in Fremantle this year, was unlikely to go ahead so RWA made the decision to move as much of the conference online as possible.

Despite restrictions, many of the sessions due to be held at the in-person conference have been able to go ahead with a mix of live and pre-recorded workshops, streamed through the browser-based Webinar Ninja.

This includes presentations from special guests New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham, Tanera Simons (agent for Darley Anderson), Anna Boatman (publisher with PCR Fiction (Piatkus Fiction and Constable Crime)) and Liz Pelletier from Entangled who will present a full-day workshop on Wednesday 12 August with a live Q&A.

Check out the full program on the new conference website at http://rwaustraliavcon.com.au.

The awards ceremony will be held on Saturday 22 August at 7pm.

An online shop selling conference swag and a digital bookstore will also be included. (Look out on social media and your emails for further details.)
We’re also thrilled to have the support of our sponsors including our gold sponsor Draft2Digital, and our silver sponsors Reedsy and Harlequin Australia. Their generous contributions to our conference are greatly appreciated.

For those of you worried you may not be able to catch all of the conference as it happens, have no fear! All sessions will be recorded and available to ticket holders for three months after the conference so you can watch the workshops at your leisure. You must register for the conference before the closing date to access them.
