Room and Board
The River Teeth Nonfiction Conference is proud to be hosted by Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio, the journal’s birthplace and residence. Conference attendees are encouraged to stay on campus and to dine with other conference attendees while here. Sharing meals together is one of the many ways we envision the conference building relationships with other nonfiction writers.
Ashland University features award-winning dining services. All meals will be catered and served in the Accent Room. Conference attendees should notify the conference administrator of dietary restrictions and special requests.
Conference participants who opt-out of meals will find there are several dining options in the area. Restaurants, grocery stores, and coffee shops are within walking distance of the University.
The meal plan includes dinner Friday evening and lunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday. Breakfast Saturday and Sunday is included in the registration fee.
Meal Plan Rate: $85
