Travel Classics East 2015

May 28-31, 2015 in Tarrytown, New York


Contact Maren Rudolph to join the waiting list.

See Registration Information, Terms & Conditions

Open to 40 professional travel writers who have published a minimum of three major magazine articles within the last 18 months. A list of publication credits must accompany the application, along with two qualifying clips (winners of the Travel Classics Writers Contest need not submit clips but must send a list of recently published articles).

Your deposit reserves your spot.

Because only 40 writers will be accepted, a $400 deposit must accompany the application. The deposit is 100% refundable if the applicant is not accepted, and acceptance will be determined two weeks after receipt of application. If for any reason an applicant decides not to attend the conference, the deposit will be refunded in full up until January 15, 2015. Qualified wait-listed attendees will receive priority for the next Writers Conference.

Conference Fee:

The conference fee is $750 ($650 early bird rate). A $400 deposit, which will be deducted from your conference fee, must accompany your application. (Please note: Attendee and guest payments are due in full by April 15, 2015 or the applicant's registration is void. For those receiving the early bird discount, the entire early bird fee of $650 is due by January 15, 2015, or the regular fee will apply.) Returning Travel Classics Writers Conference attendees receive a $100 discount on the conference fee.

Accommodations Fee:

The accommodations fee is to be paid to Travel Classics and is in addition to the conference fee. The accommodations fee for three nights at Tarrytown House Estate for a single is $675 (if paid in full by December 15, 2014; $825 if paid after December 15th). There is a daily supplement of $150 per night for a double. Accommodations fees include tax, gratuities, Wi-Fi, resort fees and daily buffet breakfast.
