policyIn order to assure all attendees, staff members, and faculty have the most education and enjoyable experience while attending Pikes Peak Writers Conference, we’ve instituted some policies by which we expect everyone at our gathering to adhere to.

In the unfortunate and unexpected event COVID cancels our in-person conference due to federal, state, or local pandemic/health regulations, we will offer refunds and/or rollover to the next year. PPWC retains the right to offer an all-virtual conference. If we do decide we can transition to an all-virtual conference, we will make appropriate refunds of the difference in cost between virtual and in-person.

We are committed to a safe environment for all our attendees. Our mitigation factors include distanced seating in workshops and meals, masks and hand sanitizer in swag bags, and we’re asking unvaccinated attendees to please wear masks in accordance with local and Doubletree guidelines. We reserve the right to require a vaccine card or a negative COVID test prior to conference start.

So you are familiar with our policies, please click the following links to read through what is expected of everyone.
