Sessions, tours, mentor meetings, FAM trips, parties, and more. It’s all here!

Once you register for WITS, you’ll be sent a login from Sched, which you can use to create and manage your own personal schedule. Nothing you add to your personal Sched is binding, and adding something to your Sched does not automatically register you for it. If a session/activity requires pre-registration, it will be noted in its description.

Renegade Mothering

Janelle Hanchett created the blog “Renegade Mothering” in 2011, inviting readers to join her in “the fight against helpful parenting advice.” Attracting an audience of hundreds of thousands, Janelle writes irreverently about the humorous and darker sides of motherhood. Her first book, I'm Just Happy to Be Here, was published in May 2018 by Hachette Book Group, and tells the story of her recovery from alcoholism as a mother. She holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in English Literature, and her writing has been featured in Buzzfeed, Brain Child, Yes! Magazine, Mamalode, and elsewhere. She recently sold everything and moved from California to The Netherlands with her husband and four kids. She’s getting used to the rain, enjoying the healthcare, and missing her mom.
