Classes

During Mountainside Marketing, we do NOT require you to sign up for classes beforehand. We will be publishing a list of classes and the schedule soon, so check back.

What to Bring

This is a hands-on conference. Attendees will be working on social media, websites, and a variety of online platforms. Computers are a must. Several of the platforms are harder to use on a tablet. If no laptop is available—and the attendee is aware of possible issues—a tablet will be accepted.

Because attendees will be working on integration between social media, websites, and blogs, a way to retrieve the relevant log-on information is required. This includes user names, passwords, and access to the relevant email accounts.

PRIVATE APPOINTMENTS

These are scheduled times when you can sit down with DiAnn and Edie to discuss your specific situation. You do NOT have to pay for these appointments, they are included as part of your conferee experience.

You will NOT sign up for these appointments until you get to the conference.

In the meantime, consider what you need help with and make a list of questions. Edie and DiAnn will also have several Q and A sessions scheduled. In addition, they’ll be available to sit with for lunch and dinner.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Attire:
Conference attire is business casual/casual.
  This isn’t a conference where attendees will be pitching editors and agents, so casual attire is acceptable. Remember, there is a lot of walking up and down hills, so be sure to pack comfortable shoes.

Stay Current on Changes:
We encourage you to please frequently check this website for new information. There is a place there to sign up for email updates when new information is posted. We strongly urge you to do so. This is the first place we share new information.

Facebook:
We will be sharing all Facebook information for Mountainside Marketing Conference on the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference Facebook Page, so please LIKE that page and turn on notifications.

We truly look forward to seeing you discover God’s path for your writing life!

Thanks & Blessings,
