Online registration is now open through Eventbrite.

Panels and Readings

All panels and readings at Growing Room are pay-what-you-can / by donation to ensure that no one is unable to attend the festival for economic reasons. You will be given the option to donate when you register for your event(s). Your donation helps sustain Growing Room and will help us keep our events free or affordable for those who otherwise cannot afford to attend. Our recommended donation tiers are: $12.50 (regular), $25.00 (generous), and $40.00 (includes a one-year subscription to Room Magazine).

Help keep Growing Room going!
Our fundraising goal for the 2019 festival is $15,000

Please note that tax receipts will not be issued for pay-what-you-can registrations.

When you register, you will be asked for your mailing information. This will be used for statistical purposes, and as the mailing address  to send one-year subscriptions to donors. We will not share or otherwise use this data.

Eventbrite accepts credit cards. If you would like to reserve a spot for a paid event but prefer to pay the registration fee with cash or cheque, please contact Isabella Wang at intern [at] roommagazine [dot] com.

Note: If you donate when you register, you will see an extra “ticket” on your order for the donation. 

Workshops and Manuscript Consultations

Registration for workshops and manuscript consultations is now open. Space is limited, so we recommend registering early. Workshops cost $15 (2.5 hour workshop) or $25 (4 hour workshop). Manuscript consultations are $35 for a half-hour consult plus notes on up to 10 pages of material.

Sold Out Events / Walk Ups

There will be standing room and/or seats available at panels, readings, and the opening night party for people who have not registered for events (including sold-out events). Priority seating will be given to elders and disabled people. There are no wait lists for sold-out events.
