Each year, the Cat Writers’ Association honors the best cat work of the year, recognizing the finalists and winners of the prestigious Muse Medallion™ and corporate awards (this year in excess of $11,000) at a gala Awards Banquet celebration traditionally held during our annual Writers Conference. Many of these sponsors will be on hand to present awards and meet-and-greet attendees. Since cats are so concerned about their grooming and appearance, banquet attendees often dress to the nines (lives.) Black tie is in no way required, but as they used to say, “If you got ‘em, wear ‘em.” Bling is encouraged, and in the case of our officers, expected.

CWA AWARDS BANQUET–A SEPARATE TICKET!
