#MWWAgentFest Update Concerning the Coronavirus: Agent Fest Postponed
March 11, 2020
Amid the growing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and a situation that has evolved rapidly, the board of directors of the Midwest Writers Workshop has voted to postpone Agent Fest.
Several universities in our state and around the country have canceled in-person classes for the next few weeks. Concerts, conferences, and companies are choosing to reschedule events and limit travel. There is too much uncertainty regarding safety and logistics for us in good conscience to move forward with the event on the scheduled dates of March 13 and 14, 2020.
You will hear from us in the next week about when the event will be rescheduled, and what that event will look like. If the rescheduled event isn’t a fit for your schedule, we’ll also have information about refunds. We appreciate your understanding, and we’ve had some exciting discussions about how to reward your patience and flexibility.
We recognize that this news is disappointing and likely inconvenient. At a time you would be polishing your pitches, now you are having to rearrange your travel plans. We are thankful you made arrangements in your life and in your schedule to focus on your writing, and we look forward to playing a part in your journey.
The Board of Directors of the Midwest Writers Workshop
