COVID-19 Response
The health and safety of community members is our number one priority. For that reason, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Lakefly Writers Conference.

Refunds: We are working on issuing full refunds to all who registered but please note it may take 8 to 10 weeks. Checks will be mailed to the address you provided at the time of registration; if you have since moved or would like the check mailed to a different address, please email
Hotel: If you registered for a hotel room at the Best Western Premiere Waterfront Hotel adjacent to the convention center, your room reservation has automatically been canceled.
Writing Contests: The writing contests are still moving forward! Winners will be notified by e-mail. Once we verify the addresses of the winners, checks and certificates will be mailed.
Save the dates: Our next conference will be May 7-8, 2021 at the Oshkosh Convention Center.

Stay safe and healthy, and keep on writing!

May 7 and 8, 2021
Oshkosh Premier Waterfront Hotel and Convention Center
