Writer’s Row Rules:

Authors must keep their space open all hours of the Fair day, rain or shine. Publishers and booksellers are not permitted to exhibit in the Writer’s Row. Space sharing is not allowed, except for author/co-author or author/illustrator scenarios. Additional space is not available to accommodate authors’ friends, families, publicists or helpers. Authors may not re-sell or sublet any portion of their space. Asking other authors to pay a fee to participate in your space at the Fair is strictly prohibited. Any violation of these stipulations by authors will result in expulsion from the Fair, and a fee refund will not be given. Once you have paid your application fee or space fee, refunds are not issued for any reason.
