Optional 30-minute private consultations are available for $95. You may use that time to either discuss a concept or proposal, or have a faculty member give you feedback on a portion of work or portfolio you have submitted. Faculty members offering consultations are listed below.

• If you have signed up for a consultation for your written work, your submission must be double-spaced in Times New Roman font, and should not exceed 20 pages. Please bring two (2) copies of your work to the conference. Additionally, please select three (3) members of the participating faculty, ranking them in order of preference, and note their names in an email to Pamela Livingston at bpconferences@bookpassage.com.
