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


This seems to happen quicker and quicker every year, but we’re excited to announce that we’ve reached our capacity and Necon 39 is now officially SOLD OUT. Once again, thank you to all of our Campers; it is your excitement and love for this convention that makes Necon so special!

Walk-in registrations for Necon 39 are still available and afford full access to all convention activities and events (you simply can’t sleep or eat at the Baypoint Inn & Conference Center). Moreover, due to the fact that we always have last-minute cancellations, we’ve begun a first-come, first served Waiting List should spots become available. Finally, if you’ve already made a deposit towards a full Necon 39 registration and would like to pay your remaining balance, you can still do that too! To register as a walk-in, pay your balance, or to join the Waiting List, please simply use the form below and select the appropriate “Payment Option”; after hitting the “Submit” button, you will be transferred to our “Process Payment” page, where you’ll be prompted to pay via PayPal (and if you’re joining the Waiting List, please just ignore that step).

Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you at Necon 39!

Any other notes you’d like to share or programming you’d like to suggest for Necon 39:


  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!

  3. I signed up for the $100 walk-in. Is it possible for me to pay in cash when I arrive, instead of using a credit card now?

  4. I just filled out questionnaire as requested for #39(I already paid at the end of #38.) I didn’t choose a price so I hope that didn’t block it from going through. (I didn’t get a confirmation window after I clicked send)

    If I put down the $100 deposit now, when will the $375 balance be due?

  6. I wanted to confirm that I am registered. I put down a $100 deposit. When will the remaining balance be due?

    • We’re happy to confirm that we received your deposit and that you’re registered for Necon 39. The remaining balance will be due by June 15th, 2019. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you into the Necon Family!

  7. Are there single rooms available and if so what is the cost? Thanks

    • Dear Dawn,

      Unfortunately, the short answer to your question is probably not; we won’t know for certain if we’ll be able to offer single rooms until much closer to the convention because space is at a premium and we typically reach capacity. That said, we will bend over backwards to accommodate you if you require a single for a medical reason. If we are able to provide you with a single, there will be a $150 upcharge ($625 total registration cost).

      Thank you and we hope to see you in July!

  8. I would like a copy of your privacy policy. Thank you.

    Hi Matt,
    I’d like to pay the balance. Should I fill out the registration form again, or just select the payment option? I don’t want to make it harder on you 😉

    • Hi Valerie!

      Yes, please fill in the required fields of the form and send it again (you can skip all the other fields, as we have that information from when you sent in your deposit).

      Thanks so much and look forward to seeing you in July! 🙂

  10. Hi, I just sent two $100 deposits via PayPal — one for me and one for Halli Villegas. Both PayPal payments came from my account, and I didn’t see anywhere to attach a note on the PayPal payment, so letting you know now. I also filled out both forms but missed putting in my province and Country — Ontario, Canada. Thanks!

    • Hi Carolyn,

      Happy to confirm that we got both deposits. Your and Halli’s spots are officially being held.

      Thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you!
      – Matt

  11. Frank Raymond Michaels

    I have the remaining balance and wish to send a teller’s check by mail, but don’t see the mailing address. Where is this option?

    • The address was listed on the downloadable PDF for mail-in registrations that we removed after we sold out. So sorry for this oversight!

      Please mail the check to:

      Necon 39
      Attn: Sara Booth
      365 Columbus Ave.
      Pawtucket, RI 02861

      Thanks and we look forward to seeing you!
