Foolscap is just a week away, and there are a number of developments we want to let everyone know about.Hotel
Our hotel block closes today! If you were thinking about staying onsite for the convention, now's the time to make your reservation. You can find all our hotel information on the Web site
, including a link to the hotel reservations page.520 Closures
The State Route 520 floating bridge across Lake Washington is slated to be closed the Saturday and Sunday of the convention. Weekend closures typically begin late Friday night and end early Monday morning. Check the WSDOT’s State Route 520 website
for details. King County's Metro Transit Trip Planner
can help those who take the bus find alternate routes to get to the hotel.Writers Workshop
Our writers workshop is filling up fast. Free with your Foolscap membership, it's a great way to spend a Friday: several sessions in which you'll get to discuss different elements of writers with pros in the field, generating material and, we hope, learning ways to advance your craft. Learn more
.Magic Book Box
This year, as every year, the Magic Book Box returns to Foolscap. Don't forget to bring books to share with your fellow Foolscap attendees, and be sure to check the box throughout the weekend to find those unexpected treasures. We'd recommend bringing only gently used books you'd honestly recommend to friends.Craft Swap
Taking the Magic Book Box concept one step further, we're having a craft materials swap this year. Have some yarn that no longer inspires you but might excite someone else? Some beads that some other beader might weave into something beautiful? Bring it along! Let's encourage each other's creativity.
NanobytesBite of Foolscap
We've changed the name of our annual brunch, and this year we're doing a couple of new and different things as well. First, every banquet ticket gets you $5 Fool Dollars* good at the Live Auction on Sunday afternoon. Second, there will be a Trivia Contest where three $10 coupons toward a Foolscap membership will be part of the prizes. What’s staying the same: It’s still in the restaurant (newly re–designed) at noon and there’s still a fabulous omelet station, smoked salmon and desserts made just for us, on top of the regular menu. It’s just $30 and more information can be found at our membership page.Volunteers
We're still looking for volunteers. If you have the time and the inclination, we've definitely got the work. Please check out our volunteer page
for contact information.
We're so looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend. Hope you can make it!
