Where is the Tom Steed building?

The Tom Steed Center aka Community Learning Center is located near I-40 and Hudiburg Drive on the Rose State Campus in Midwest City, Oklahoma. A map is provided for your convenience - look for Building #20. Download the map.

What do I bring to the Retreat?

Bring writing materials to take notes while seated in comfortable theatre seating, cards for networking, and a sweater or jacket because the auditorium is chilly. Soft drink and snack machines are available. Free coffee is provided.

Do I have to pay for parking?

No. Free parking is available adjacent to the building.

What hotel is everyone staying in?

Fiction Writers Retreat will be held at an event center and no host hotel has been designated. A list of nearby hotels/motels was provided by the Midwest City Chamber of Commerce. Click here for the hotel/motel list.

Where's the fee for the 10-minute mentoring? I had to pay an extra 60 dollars at 2 different conferences I attended.

There is NO additional fee for the mentoring opportunity - one of the perks of this Retreat - so sign up early. Even without a mentoring appointment, an $89 retreat is a bargain. Hope to see you there.
