To Prepare for Conference


Midsouth thanks its many volunteers including the Fall Conference Committee and our brochure artist, Kris Sexton, who provided our event illustrations.  And thank you, our attendees, for coming to the Midsouth Fall Conference.

Important!  Before you begin, please read:

• Registration is not optimized for mobile devices.

• Please have your selections and payment information ready before starting registration.  If you browse away from the registration page, you may have to start over.

• Please note that the right-side event menus (gray box with green text) do not open in a new window.  If you want to keep your registration page open AND open those pages, use the links above rather than the side-menus.

As part of registration, you will be asked to read and acknowledge the SCBWI Anti-Harassment Policy by clicking an “I have read” box. For more information on this policy, click here.

• After entering your Event Registration information, you must select your ticket to display the Fall Conference options that go with your ticket.

After registration is completed, members may double-check their choices at any time by logging in to, clicking “My Home,” and then selecting “Event History” from the left-side menu. Then click on “View Registration Confirmation” for the 2018 Midsouth Conference. Non-members will not have this option, so make notes as you register to remind yourself of your selections.
