Words & Music: 2012 Registration Pricing

We realize that the pricing schedule for Words & Music is complicated because of the exciting array of events we are presenting for you. This year's pricing represents an attempt to simplify somewhat! In addition to the Words & Music writers tuition and all-events packages, you may also choose on an a la carte basis from a variety of luncheon and evening events which feature music, food, and wine. Our 2012 pricing is essentially the same as 2011. The Writers Tuition Package, as last year, includes more than it did prior to 2011. Please note the list of inclusions and discounts within the package blurb.

We have a variety of package prices if you want to participate in most or all of the festival. You may also, however, buy a single ticket for a single event.

For credit card reservations, you may register directly with us for now but we hope to have asecure on-line tickets sale site by June 1. Please note that we do not take on-line credit card payment for orders of less than $50, however. You may register by credit card or check in advance directly with us by printing and completing a registration form and mailing to us with check or credit card info at Words & Music, Faulkner House, 624 Pirate's Alley, New Orleans, LA 70116. Mailed Reservations must be accompanied by a reservations form. Individual discussion event tickets can be purchased at the door with cash or ordered in advance with credit card or check payment. All food and wine events must be reserved in advance.

Writers please note:
There are discounts on entertainment, food, and wine events for writers registering for tuition packages. These discounts are reflected where applicable on this page.

Pricing and other details for any additional events of the conference will be posted as soon as schedules of presenters and other details have been determined.
