All to help you on your journey to publication.

Quick tips before heading to the registration site …
To get the most out of your registration and make it as seamless as possible, set aside an hour with your favorite beverage and follow the general registration instructions. Have the general schedule, faculty bios and workshop descriptions handy and use the registration worksheet to help you stay on track. There are space limits to certain sessions and other info to be aware of, so be sure to click a 'details' link where you see it. Also, when registering, if a pdf pops up with 2015 dates, simply refresh your browser, or empty your caches, then refresh. 

Most important tip of all: DO NOT USE THE BROWSER BACK BUTTON when you are registering, because you will lose everything and have to start again. Simply, take your time, and if you need to go back to a previous page, simply click one of the tabs within your registration.
FINAL NOTE: If you have a NJSCBWI credit for this year's conference, you MUST CONTACT THE RA BEFORE registering. (Regretfully, we cannot honor the credit if you have already registered.)
