It is not too late to register for the 2011 Annual Idahope Christian Writers Conference.

Late registration is available at the door for $30, Saturday, February 26. Registration begins at 8 a.m.


We will provide coffee and pastries at registration and coffee service throughout the day. The conference begins at 8:30 a.m. Our schedule allows for a 75 minute lunch from 11:45 to 1 p.m. The lunch meal is not included in the $30 conference fee.


However, Idahope will have a catering service provide a boxed lunch (sandwiches) for $10/person. **To order a boxed lunch by Thursday, please read below. If you choose not to participate in the box lunch here are a few other options.


  • There are a few fast food chains nearby the conference location including pizza hut, Sonic Drive-in and Quiznos Sandwich. (See map below.)
  • You could bring a sack lunch or have someone deliver something for you during the lunch hour.


The catering service will be provided by “3 Girls Catering” and you have two choices for lunch.


Option 1—It’s a Wrap

Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap

With Chopped Romaine, Diced Tomatoes & Shredded Parmesan Cheese, Tangy Caesar Dressing & Cracked Pepper

Sweet & Savory Orzo Salad with Dried Cranberries & Apricots, Toasted Walnuts, Caramelized Onions & Veggies

Option 2—All American

Roast Beef ‘n Cheddar Sandwich with Green Leaf, Red Onion & Horsey Sauce

Garden Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Red Onion & Ranch


Unfortunately there cannot be modifications to the sandwiches, so if you have dietary needs, please consider bringing your own bagged lunch.


**To order: The catering must be finalized by noon, Thursday, February 24. You must order by emailing Hilarey Johnson with your sandwich choice. Orders must be paid for ($10) at the registration table the morning of the conference. Then you will receive your meal ticket.


We apologize for the late notice and the limited time response. If you do not make the deadline you still have the other two options. It is our hope to encourage people to stay at the conference location for the noon meal for two reasons. One, there are very few fast food options and two, we hope attendees will be able to relax, socialize and network with fellow writers between sessions.


Below is a link and a map of Cole Community so you will see some of the meal options in the area.
