What to expect? We start on Thursday with our popular pre-conference intensive roundtables with some of the best agents, publishers and editors around including Michelle Johnson, Christopher Rhodes, and Marty Gervais. We have eight agents and editors so far! Last year four writers found agents at this pre-conference and three are now published – an awesome track record!
There will be tons of schmoozing and networking with like-minded, passionate writers and people who can help advance a writing career. Panel discussions, keynote speakers, breakout sessions….and a lot of exciting surprises!
Here’s something to whet your appetite: We have a first class chef making some very interesting lunches and dinners for us. With 140 different country styles to choose from, you can bet it’s going to be divine!
Did we mention there will be a book store, book signings, social gatherings, a couple of contests . . . or three or four . . . and a little entertainment on the side? We will also have special exhibitions to stimulate your Writer’s mind. The first prize last year for all three contests was free registration to this conference! As one winner said: “Not bad, not bad at all.”
From the moment you arrive in our wonderful city you become part of our family. Just leave your worries behind you, chill out — and above all get ready to be inspired, get creative and write!
