Can you believe we only have 22-days before BDSM Writers Con. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see you all.
I want to take a moment to bring everyone up to date on logistics and updates in our programming.
We’ll be staying at the Tryp Hotel in the heart of the fashion district. Though Macy’s super store is only a block away, there are other wonderful stores to shop in. Plus, many of the smaller stores have fabulous deals like $20 unknown-designer shoes and clothing. And of course, there’s hundreds of little stores to by “I love NY” t-shirts.
The hotel has a lounge and a small bar on premises so you’ll be able to eat there. Or choose one of the local eateries. There are deli’s down the block in either direction. No problem with bringing water or coffee into the conference room; but food must remain outside. There is a small lounge area next to our conference rooms where you can relax between sessions or use for lunch time.
Wednesday 5:30 – 7:00 pm:
We will be hosting our annual Author’s Networking get together from 5:30 pm till 7:00 pm. This event is for authors only. (Aspiring authors are welcomed.) It’s a wonderful time to network and find mentors and be a “fan-girl.”
Wednesday 7:30 – 10:00 pm:
Join us for our annual BWC Kick-Off Party. This was originally started by request of author, Cris Anson in 2012 and has become a fabulous way for everyone arriving the night before BWC to Mix & Mingle.
Our Program Schedule will be finalized by August 1st. We have an amazing array of world class BDSM Experts providing information and Live Demos. Feel free to ask questions and learn from their vast knowledge. Remember, we don’t all think alike; however, we all show our respect.
BDSM Club Night:
The New York BDSM night life has changed dramatically in the past year. The Party promoters we rely on are no longer available and Paddles is having a Gay Party Night on August 19, therefore, we can’t go there. Though we won’t be able to give you the BDSM Club Night you may have imagined, never fear, because you will be experiencing a Taste of Dominance Saturday night during our Private Party Event. The Taste of Dominance will have various stations for you to enjoy and experience with various D/s activities—just as you would at a club. You’re welcomed to dress up and enjoy the festivities. Best of all, you’ll still have time to go out on the town. More details in your Program Notebooks.
Sunday 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (noon):
Join us for our Closing Ceremony. It’s our version of Aftercare. Plus, we’ll provide a continental breakfast. This is a great time to share your experience and comments.
Golden Flogger Award Finalists:
Will be announced August 1st.
Every year, we raffle off gift baskets from authors and vendors to raise funds to support the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) and continuing BDSM education. If you would like to donate a gift basket or two, please mail it to us by August 10 or bring it with you to the conference. You’re also welcomed to provide Swag and promotional information (60-pieces). Our mailing address is:
