Call for Authors for the 2023 WVRA Reading Conference
July 27, 2023
Dear West Virginia Authors:
In 1968, we started a reading (R)evolution as the first professional organization in our state dedicated to improving reading education. Then and now, WVRA members have consistently demonstrated a strong commitment to encouraging and supporting all West Virginia readers. More than 50 years later, we remain confident, committed, and caring West Virginians who are dedicated to the importance of reading and literacy.
We will hold our 67th annual conference on November 16 – 17, 2023, in White Sulphur Springs, WV at the beautiful Greenbrier Resort. This year, the conference will celebrate and embrace career readiness at all grade levels, creating lifelong learners. The conference theme is “Reading Opens Doors for the Future” and reflects the amazing impact that literacy has Kindergarten through lifelong learning.
WVRA is delighted to invite WV Authors to attend the conference once again at a special reduced rate, of $50. This is a $60 discount off the regular preregistration fee. Please complete and return this special registration form especially for WV authors along with full payment on or before October 16, 2023 in order to receive this reduced rate. With this rate, authors will receive space at a table in the Author Interactive area currently located in the Exhibit Hall. Lodging is the responsibility of the authors. A special rate is available from the Greenbrier. The form may be obtained here. While at the table, authors may sell and sign as many books as they wish. Please note that all materials should fit on a standard size table and should not interfere with other authors. Attendees enjoy visiting with authors and purchasing autographed copies of their books during the conference. We hope that this will enable authors to network with conferees and other authors. WVRA looks forward to seeing you in November. Authors wishing to present concurrent sessions or workshops during the conference, must complete and have accepted for presentation a proposal on the 2023 Call for Proposal form on the wvreading.com website and must pay to register as a WV Author.
