#ROSACon2014: South Africa's first conference for romance writers

ROSA will host South Africa's first ever conference for romance writers on 25 & 26 October 2014 at Melrose Place in Johannesburg.

The conference features workshops, guest talks on marketing and writing craft, as well as the chance to pitch to an overseas editor and agent.

On the evening of Saturday 25 October there will be a gala dinner, open to both delegates and non-delegates alike. Partners, friends, readers and book reviewers are all welcome to attend the dinner.

The conference costs are as follows:
  • Full day conference on Saturday 25 October only: R970
  • Half day conference on Sunday 26 October only: R830
  • Both days together: R1,390 (a saving of R410)
  • Gala dinner on Saturday evening: R395
Lunch is included on both days of the conference. The fee for the gala dinner includes one drink on arrival, but all further drinks are excluded.

  • Preference will be given to delegates who book for both days. If you wish to attend on only one day, you will be placed on a waiting list.
  • The gala dinner is to be booked separately to the main conference and is NOT included in the 'Both days together' cost.
