Attend the 805 Book Expo
This year, WPN has added a book expo to the 805 Writers Conference. Area authors and conference speakers will have their books available for purchase. Speakers from the 805 conference will be signing their books at specific times during each day.
The expo will be open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free and the book-loving public is welcome. Parking is available in one of the nearby Ventura parking structures.
We encourage everyone planning to attend to pre-register and become eligible for our Bag of Books Drawing. Each day two bags filled with books from speakers and exhibitors, each valued at over $100, will be given away to two people who registered in advance. Drawings will be held between 2 and 3 o’clock each afternoon. Pre-register available soon.
A list of authors in the expo will be available in early October.
To Become an Author/Exhibitor
There is room for 35 authors/exhibitors per day. Space is a shared table with another author. Space can be purchased for one day or both days. Authors may also rent a full table.
Authors may bring one table sign and a large sign to stand behind their table. Each author is responsible for managing the sales of their books. Authors may choose the section of their choice but must understand that all tables will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
COVID Statement: The 805 Writers Conference will comply with all county and state requirements for attendees, speakers, and exhibitors to maintain a safe environment for everyone. We will follow the guidance or regulations effective November 1, 2021, or following updates. Anyone not choosing to comply will be refused entrance and is not eligible for a refund. If a conference attendee, they will receive links to the recordings of each session.
