CAT WRITERS CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

We have been hard at work planning a great event! There will be many great educational sessions and a fantastic keynote speaker.  We are bringing back the exhibit area where you will have time to visit and network with our sponsors. We also have a fun afternoon at the cat show planned, and special lunch on Saturday, followed by our featured Keynote address. Polish up your bling, leopard print, cat ears — or anything that makes you feel feline festive — to attend the gala annual awards banquet on Saturday night.

CFA GULF SHORE REGIONAL CAT SHOW

We listened to your feedback and co-located our conference this year with the Cat Fanciers’ Association Gulf Shore Regional Cat Show.  The show is in the same cat-friendly hotel as our event.  We have also arranged to have a book signing table at the cat show.  So there will be opportunities for CWA member authors to sign and sell books to cat show attendees throughout the weekend.
