Register here for the 2023 California Crime Writers Conference

The conference fee is $395 for two full days of exciting and inspiring information, and includes lunch on both days. We only have so many slots, so sign up now.

We know that registration prices this year are much higher than in 2019. Hotel prices for events have skyrocketed, and this is the lowest fee we can charge without losing money on the conference.

If you are a published author with wisdom to share, and you would like to be on a panel, please fill in the space provided on the form. However, we cannot guarantee that you will be placed on a panel. We have only so many spots and a wealth of wonderful speakers.

All those things that you need to know before booking –

A non-refundable booking fee of $3.00 will be added to all conference sign ups. This is to cover the costs that we’re charged for the ticketing processes. You will also have the option to donate a little extra if you want. Just add how much in the box provided in the form.

To optimize health and safety for this conference, we require proof of vaccination to attend.
We will ask you to email a copy of your vaccination certificate shortly before the conference, or present it in person when you arrive. We strongly recommend the most
recent booster to keep everyone safe.

If you would like to pay by check, that option is provided. However, we discourage it. Space at the conference is limited, and if you send a check, we cannot guarantee that we will receive it in a timely manner. We do not want you disappointed because we didn’t get your check before the spaces filled up.

If you cancel before February 28, 2023, you will receive a full refund minus the booking fee. If you cancel between March 1, 2023 and April 30, 2023, you will receive a 50% refund minus the booking fee. No refunds after April 30, 2023. (If you have a special issue and need to cancel after March 1, please contact us at We can’t promise, but we’ll do what we can.)
