2023 Writers' Police Academy registration opens February 1, 2023 at noon EST.
Registration and Refund Policy: Registration will stop when maximum capacity is reached. No refunds will be processed after April 1, 2023. No exceptions.
Registrations may not be transferred to another individual.
Disclaimer: At any time, with or without giving notice, the WPA, in its sole discretion and without giving reason, may modify the schedule, change, cancel or postpone the conference.
Cancellation of Event Due to COVID: If the 2022 Writers' Police Academy is forced to cancel due to COVID, we will offer refunds, or the option to carry over your registration until the next event. The same is so in the event there's an official government closing of the U.S. border, where crossings would not be permitted due to COVID.
Your spot would then be guaranteed at the 2023 rate. Unfortunately, refunds will not be granted due to positive COVID tests. The same is so for other illnesses, such as flu, cold, etc.
Recording and/or Sharing Material: No part of any Writers’ Police Academy/MurderCon (WPA) events, either the virtual or live, in-person, may be recorded, reproduced, shared, or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, including but not limited to social media live-streaming, video or audio recording, photograph, photocopy or any other information storage or retrieval system without the explicit written permission of the WPA.
*Registration opens at noon EST February 1, 2023.
