Conference Schedule of Events

Please Note: All events take place in the Oakland Center of Oakland University (2200 N Squirrel Road, Rochester, MI 48309). Use parking lot 2 and walk south (opposite the pond) for the shortest distance into the Oakland Center. In addition, use parking lot 1 (the big lot off Squirrel Road) and walk east toward the building. The Oakland Center is positioned between the lots and the Clock Tower. Look for Bright Yellow Signs. The Oakland Center is #13 on the Campus Map.

Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the last session will end by 5:00 p.m.

Presentations and presenters may change without notice. Rochester Writers will keep the sessions up to date here at the website.  Please check back often for updates.

Due to the ongoing construction at Oakland University, with limited dates and rooms available, Rochester Writers could only run its event on October 4 this year. The event falls on Yom Kippur – we apologize – and understand that this will preclude some from coming.
