Author Registration

Thank you for your interest in I.O.W.A. 2017. Author Registration will open in September in waves.

Wave 1 (8/31 to 9/7): 2016 Attendees will have the opportunity to register first.

Wave 2 (9/7 to 9/14): Members of our 2017 Interest Mailing list will be invited to register.

Wave 3: (9/14 till full): Author registration will be made public.

When: August 5, 2017, 10 AM to 3 PM.
Where: Lindale Mall Food Court, Cedar Rapids, IA.
Cost: $50 (+$3.34 processing fee) for one author plus 1.
Table Size and Chairs: Each author will receive a 2.5′ x 4′ table space + 2 chairs.

Registration is limited to 45 authors. Our goal is to introduce readers to new authors from a variety of genres during this single day signing event so we have a limit on the number of authors per genre. We have chosen high level general genres to be as inclusive as possible of those wishing to attend.

When you register, please select the genre that best represents the majority of the books you have written. You are welcome to bring all your books, regardless of genre, to the event. We will do our best to promote you and your books based on the genre(s) you list on your registration form.

If you have any questions about registration or the event, please feel free to contact us at
