THE END: Writers’ Police Academy’s FINAL Event – Two Registrations for the Price of One!

Yes, the time has come for us to drop the mic. It’s the end. The Grand Finale.

After 15 years of delivering heart pounding, hands-on excitement and helping writers learn and experience behind the scenes details about law enforcement, forensics, firefighting, EMS, and more, the Writers’ Police Academy is closing the doors on this chapter of its business.

The June 8-11, 2023 event is the last opportunity for you to attend the Writers’ Police Academy; therefore, we encourage, welcome, and invite you to join us for a final celebration of one of the top events for writers from around the world.

It’s been a wild ride, for sure. We’ve seen new authors become bestsellers. We’ve connected writers with agents and editors. Bestselling novels were born at the WPA. Lasting friendships were formed. Together we’ve enjoyed good times and we’ve seen one another through heartbreaking hardships. We’ve shared ideas and dreams. And through it all, we’ve had fun. Lots of FUN!

So, please …

Come Join Us as we celebrate the FINAL year of the Writers’ Police Academy.

Our Gift to You!

As our way of saying thanks for your support over the past 15 years we are offering a “Buy One, Get One Free” sale—two registrations for the price of one!

Here’s how it works. You sign up to attend the 2023 Writers’ Police Academy and your guest’s registration is free. It’s that simple. No strings attached. So bring a friend, a co-author, a significant other, your editor or agent, child (16 or older), cousin, aunt, uncle, grandparent, a neighbor, etc.

Registering your Guest

After you’ve completed your registration, contact Lee Lofland at with the name and email address of your guest. He will then provide a payment bypass code for your guest to use when registering.


  • Offer applies to 2023 paid registrations only.
  • Already registered, you may still bring a guest. Offer is retroactive to those who’ve registered and paid in 2023 to attend in 2023. Your guest may not be someone who’s already registered to attend, or someone who previously signed up and cancelled their registration.
  • One free registration per paid attendee.
  • Buy One Get One Free offer may not be used in conjunction with any other promotion or offer.
  • Offer is for one free registration only. Hotel, travel, banquet, and other expenses are not included. However, each WPA registration includes free breakfast at the hotel (buffet with our group) and lunches at the public safety academy.
  • Offer is good until all spots are filled/the event sells out, and may end without notice at any time.

To take advantage of this incredibly fantastic offer, click the link below to sign up while there’s still time to attend this thrilling event.

*The closing of the WPA annual event is certainly not the end of our projects for writers. Not at all. We have a couple of exciting plans in the works. So stay tuned!

    Thanks Lee, for putting this on year after year! I was privileged to go last year and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had – highly, highly recommend! If you haven’t been and you can possibly make this, DO IT!!!

    Sorry to see WPA ending, but I know it’s a lot of work to put on this event. Thank you, Lee, for giving us 15. I attended three and learned so much. If I could go this year, I would, but I’m afraid I can’t. Wishing you another successful WPA.

    Wow, this makes me so sad. I wish I could make it this year–which would be my 3rd WPA–but I’m in the midst of selling my house and moving so, alas, it’s not likely. Lee, you have helped me so much in my writing career and I am so truly grateful. I have more to thank you for than I could begin to say. I know how much you and your family have been through and wish you all the very best, Susan aka Merit Clark.

    If I were physically able, I would be there. When you were at the OWFI conference, I was able to get around fairly well, but now I can’t walk at all without a walker and have to use oxygen 24/7. Covid almost finished me in 2022, and I miss being able to do even what I really WANT to do. I have always wanted to attend your academy, and here’s the last one. I hope all the best for you, your wife, and your grandson.

    So sorry to see this come to an end. WPA was the best conference I ever attended. There was another one that I attended in Tennessee that was really good in the past, but when I went back to it last year it was a major disappointment. I’m running out of conferences now.
