The Muffin Fund

The YWC is looking for authors, publishers, and print-related businesses to help subsidize our conference perks. If you are interested in getting the word out about your book or company, we will include posted flyers in key areas around the conference centre and other perks celebrating your wonderful generosity.

If you’d like to donate $20 or more toward our “morning muffin” fund, simply add it to your registration. If you can contribute a gift basket to our raffle for day-of advertising, contact MJ Moores at for more details. For details about the benefits of donating to our “Muffin Fund,” visit Advertise at the YWC.
