We're in the last few hours before the second All Write Now! writers' conference begins and the committee and volunteers are excited about the enthusiasm and energy surrounding this event. Everything is knitting together here at the last minute and we can't wait to see all of you come to Cape Girardeau to join us for a fun and educational day at the University Center on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University.
Here are a few notes to help you on your journey.
If you've never been to Cape Girardeau before, click "Southeast Missouri State University" in the header of the All Write Now! web page and it will give you directions to the University Center. You can also click this link: http://www.semo.edu/uc/directions.html.
Parking: The lot across from the UC is being refinished. Argh! However, we've been given permission to park in the lot adjacent. If you get a ticket, please bring it to one of the AWN! staff and we will take care of it. However, we don't foresee any problems.
You may also park on the street but PLEASE park legally. The University has no jurisdiction over street parking and if you get a ticket from the city police (parking in a yellow zone, too far from the curb, etc.) we can't help you with that.
Greeters and signs will be at both the ground floor and third floor entrances to help you find your way to the fourth floor where all the fun will happen.
PLEASE do not arrive before 8:00 a.m. The greeters will hold you at the doors until 8:00 a.m. Why? We want you to be able to walk in, register, and start your conference in a pleasant and relaxed manner rather than be confused or frustrated by the husstle and bustle of staff trying to get everything organized.
If you have any last minute questions, please don't hesitate to email Donna Essner at email@example.com, Janet Cannon at firstname.lastname@example.org, or if it is an urgent question, text or call Janet at 573-275-9694.
