Wordplay Registration

Wordplay Festival Registration

Wordplay 2021 is May 2-8! Enhanced tickets are now available (enhanced tickets include guaranteed access to every Wordplay event, plus extra virtual, facilitated discussions with some visits from the authors). Enhanced tickets to Wordplay without the Ishiguro ticket are $35. Due to the limited nature of these, there are no refunds available for enhanced tickets.

Transitioning to a virtual festival for the second year in a row places a large financial burden on the Loft. If you can support us with a donation, we really appreciate it.

If you’re looking for free tickets (aka registration) for individual Wordplay events, please see our individual event listings at the orange schedule link above. On the schedule page you can scroll through the Wordplay events and choose which ones you want to attend. (Registration buttons appear on each individual event page.) When you’re on an event page, register by clicking “Save my spot!” If this is the first time you've registered, you'll receive an email asking you to confirm. Click the orange button in the email and you’re set.

Enhanced ticket sales close at 9 a.m. on April 30.
