We encourage all members of MWSA to attend this year’s conference. The general membership meeting allows members to learn more about what’s going on in MWSA, provides the opportunity to voice your suggestions for the future of MWSA, and includes seminars that are designed to improve your skills as a writer. Presentations will entertain and educate you on the military history of Charleston. In response to a number of requests from last year’s conference, we plan to focus a portion of the conference on the science of editing.
The conference will begin with an ice breaker reception in the early evening of November 8. The Awards Banquet will be held the evening of November 10. Your conference fee will cover your attendance at the Banquet. Guests are welcome at the banquet, but please note if you bring a guest there will be an additional charge.
We will honor cancellation refund requests until the last minute possible; however, once we have to lock in meals, etc. with the hotel, refunds will not be possible. This usually happens around a week before the start of the conference.
If you want to participate in a panel or would like to make a presentation, please let Bob Doerr know. He can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.orgHosting the 2018 MWSA Membership Meeting will be the Hilton Garden Inn of Mount Pleasant in the shadow of the Ravenel Bridge. The hotel is a mile from Patriot's Point, the home of Yorktown, the Medal of Honor Museum and the Viet Nam Experience Museum. It is across the river from historic Charleston and Fort Sumter where the civil war began.
Make your room reservation ($125 per night) directly with the hotel by calling 1-843-601-4600. Be sure to tell them you are with the Military Writers Society of America.
