Most Commonly Asked Questions

There are big changes for 2021!

I work a full-time job or am not available all days the week of the event. Will it be recorded and how long do I have access?

This is a big question! But good news! Everything is recorded, even the live events. The bulk of our “live” workshops will happen Thursday and Friday, March 4th and 5th. But everything will be recorded and available for access on demand, on your own schedule. You’ll have access to the content for 6 months, so no worries if you can’t be there live! Check out the calendar of live events here.

Can I see the schedule to decide if it’s worth purchasing a ticket?

We are still finalizing the schedule, however, if you go to the Speakers page, you’ll see the topics that are covered this year, as well as the people delivering them. 

Where is the FREE conference registration?

In years past, the content was available for free for 24 hours and then you could buy the All Access Pass, which was the recordings on demand. This year, we’ve changed our format to a true conference format. More teaching workshops, more live events, and other conference activities geared towards writers – live workshops, writing sprints, Q&A sessions, and so forth. You must buy a ticket to gain access to all of these events, the community, and the live training workshops.

There will be a few limited free presentations that will be live on the website on March 1st and 2nd. You do not need to register for those events, but you will not have access to the remaining content, live workshops, or community activities. 

I am not getting the emails.  Please check your spam, and if it’s possible that you used a different email address to register, please check your other accounts. Search for emails from [email protected] Make sure you add this email to your address book. 

The most common reasons we see for people NOT receiving the emails are:

1 – You haven’t actually registered by filling out the form and entering your email address. You can register on our homepage at

2 – Your emails are going to spam or another folder. Do a search of your inbox and spam for [email protected]

3 – Your host is blocking us… I don’t have a solution for that other than trying to register with a different email or sending us an email directly to [email protected] that we can hopefully reply to. You can also register through Facebook Messenger by going to our Facebook page – and sending us a message.

4 – You mistyped your email address. We’ve seen lots of bounced emails with a gmail.xcom or gmail.con, etc. If you’re certain you registered, you’ve checked for spam and other folders, there’s a good chance this is what happened. Try registering again. You should receive an email immediately. If you don’t, there is an issue.

5 – You live in a GDPR country and did not confirm your email address.

Emails about your purchase:  If you purchased the Full Conference Ticket, and any upgrades, you will have received receipts with the link and an additional email from [email protected] with the link and instructions for accessing. Please search your spam and full inbox for those emails.

Do you live in a GDPR regulated country? If YES, you must CONFIRM your registration. Once you signed up, you should have received an email asking you to confirm. If you didn’t confirm within 3 days, you were de-registered, so please try signing up again.

I have an AOL, Yahoo or Hotmail address, and I’m not getting the emails. I’ve even checked my spam! Nearly 99% of the people reporting that they haven’t gotten the emails have a AOL/Yahoo/Hotmail address. We don’t know why this is, we’re sorry but your server is trashing our emails.  First, as suggested above, add [email protected] to your address book (whitelist). Second, consider using an alternative email address. Gmail addresses seem to be the most reliable, or an address with personal/company domain. 

Where’s the Conference Workbook? The 2021 Workbook is coming soon!

Where are the presentations? Please note, content is not released until the summit begins! You will not find them in the conference portal, which you will gain access to once you have registered. Again, content drops March 1st! Please make sure you are registered, and then check your email for links. If you aren’t receiving emails, check your spam. If they aren’t in spam, please email us at [email protected] Each day of the conference, you will receive an email about what is now available.

I can’t get the website to load.  Users are reporting issues with Internet Explorer. Please consider switching to Chrome, Safari or Firefox. If none of that works, it’s possible there is an outage. Please return to check in a bit.

I paid for the Conference Ticket and don’t know how to access the conference. You should have received an emailed from [email protected] confirming your purchase and providing the links to access everything – so check for this email. You’ll click on the link that will take you to the membership enrollment course. You MUST Click on ENROLL to get started.

I am clicking on the link in the Full Conference Ticket email and you can’t access the content.
Scroll to the top of the page and make sure you have clicked ENROLL. You must enroll with your email address and password, and then the materials will be available through your dashboard. DO NOT ENROLL with the LINKEDIN option. We consistently have issues with this.

If you’ve already enrolled and have forgotten where to go, Please go to and log into your dashboard. If you can’t remember your password, do a password reset. If it’s not allowing you to reset your password, odds are, you don’t have an account, or you used a different email address to create your account. 

I can’t find the sponsor deals for Conference attendees.  The bonuses for the Full Conference Ticket are inside the course, which you should access the link you received via email. Please make sure you are enrolled in the Full Conference Ticket program, as detailed above. If you aren’t, check the email you received when you purchased the conference ticket for instructions on completing your enrollment.

Where do I find the live presentations? The live presentations will be available to those who have purchased a ticket. The limited free presentations will be live on the main website page and broadcast onto the Women in Publishing Summit Facebook page.

I’m really interested in being a speaker in next year’s conference. Yay! Go here!
