The goal would be to cover the minimum costs associated with running the AWC. The website has already been paid, but the other numbers are projections. Here are some numbers:
Website (2023-2024): $192
2024 Prize & Shipping Costs: $55
(AWC Merch Prize: up to $30 + $10 Shipping)
(eBook Prize: up to $15)
AWC Intro & Outro Animation: $80
Total Incurred / Expected Costs for 2024: $327
Like last year, any amount raised above this will be put toward Amazon gift cards for the AWC Prizes.
The Authortube Writing Conference (AWC) was founded by S.D. Huston in 2022, and Margaret Pinard joined on as a partner in 2023.
The conference's goals are about bringing people together from all aspects of the writing and the book-making process. This conference is an opportunity to get inside the world of writing craft, traditional and indie publishing, and to connect writers, authors, and professionals who all work toward adding great literature and knowledge to our world’s depository.
