This registration/application form helps us make sure we have a good balance of participants given our limited capacity (around 100 people). We're looking for a broad swath of participants to create great projects relating to books, reading, libraries, publishing.
Thanks to the generosity of sponsors we will likely have travel stipend budgets for folks who are coming from out of town and can work on sponsor projects. This can take the form of a shared hotel rooms or stipends.
So make sure to indicate if you need one. Our base rate for stipends is $200 (for the Northeast) and up to $250 (further away). It can go higher than that depending on demand, if you are willing to work on a sponsor project, or if we need to balance the talent pool (e.g. designers) and how much more money we can get from our sponsors!
But if you are registering now, and $200-250 can make a difference to tip you to start making travel plans, you should let us know, because that can expedite our response when we start going through the applications.
We're also negotiating a block of rooms at Kendall Marriott for what looks to be $129 (plus taxes) per night. If you would like to book a room but are looking for a roommate, please let us know.
