Registration for the Northeastern Writers' Conference, a.k.a. Camp Necon

However, there’s no limit upon Walk-In registrants, so please use the form below to join us in that capacity (or simply pay at the door when you arrive).
Also, as we always inevitably receive cancellations, we’ve started a Waiting List. Simply submit the following form and we’ll notify prospective Campers on a first-come, first-served basis as / if spots become available.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you this summer!

Any other notes you’d like to share or programming you’d like to suggest for Necon 38:


  1. How is walk-in registration handled? I sent in an application yesterday via the online form. Are email acknowledgements sent? I’d hate to assume that I have a place reserved and find out next summer that oops, nope–we never got your application.

    • Hi Elaine! I sent you an email yesterday, but the short answer is YES, I can confirm you’re all set as a walk-in for Necon 38. Please feel free to email Sara or me with any questions. Thanks! – Matt

  2. Hi! Jeff O’brien (past attendee) and myself are only available to come for a day. Do you have day passes available? Thanks!

    • Hi Melanie,

      I responded in full via email (please check your inbox), but the short answer is YES.

      Thanks and hope to see you at Necon!
      – Matt Bechtel
