Registration Drive Aug. 10-14 (And Your Chance to Win Prizes)

Next week, The Writer's Center will hold its first annual Registration Drive. The Fall issue of The Carousel was shipped this week, so it should be in your hands by next week. So you can see for yourselves just what a great lineup of workshops (and events) we have on tap. The workshop season begins in early September, and in addition to our usual lineup of great workshops across a variety of genres, we also have about a dozen new workshops and workshop leaders. The fall workshop seasons runs until December.

How will the Registration Drive and prize giveaway work?

Beginning Monday, we'll send an e-mail and also post information at And here's the kicker: Everyone who registers for a workshop all next week will be eligible to win a prize in our daily random drawing. What you could win:

1) ONE FREE one-year membership to The Writer's Center
2) ONE FREE DVD of the film "The Soloist" starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. courtesy of Paramount Home Entertainment.
3) TWO FREE tickets to attend Obie Award-winning actor and author Martin Moran's Oct. 19th performance at The Writer's Center (this ticket is normally priced at $10; $5 for members).

Important notes. Please read carefully:
With this post, the Registration Drive officially begins. That means that anyone reading this post today or during the weekend can register for a workshop and become eligible for a prize. All registrations from today until Monday COB will be pooled together with Monday's drawing. The drawings will be held on the morning following the close of registrations. (So Tuesday morning will be the drawing for the Monday prize.)

Tell your friends: You are more than welcome to share this post with others. Tweet it. Put it on Facebook. Email it.

There will be only ONE winner per category each day, and the winners will be posted on this blog and on the Web site, and no winner can win more than one daily prize. But everyone, even the daily winners, will be registered for our Friday, August 14 Grand Prize drawing: ONE FREE Winter workshop of your choice. Note: In order to win any prize next week, you need to register for at least one workshop (of any length, from one-session up to 8-sessions).

All methods of registration are eligible: you can call us at 301.654.8664, you can register online, in person, or by mail.

This giveaway cannot be combined with other offers. And of course, as always, WC employees, workshop leaders, board members, families of each of these groups are ineligible to receive prizes.

Well, if I'd known about this, I wouldn't have gotten a jump on things and registered already! Sigh.
