Maryland Writers Conference - 2012
Writing in Times of Change
Not only am I speaking at the conference but I'm co-chair of it with an amazing woman, Kay Chilcote, who's jumped in at the last minute to get the event in order.
If you're in the Maryland Area, you can just walk in an pay to attend the event.
SESSIONS & TOPICS: From Books-To Script-To Movie, Speed Writing Workshop, Fiction's Forgotten Discipline, Writing In Response To Current Events, Edit it Write, Writing Sell Worthy Query Letters, Writing for Personal Growth and Publication, Build Your Author Platform, Seducing Agents With Your Synopsis, Writing Romance That Sizzles, Write & Market Memoirs, Fifty Shades of Marketing Poetry, What is a Publisher And Should I Become One, Marketing Short Stories, The Space Between Non-Fiction and Fiction, Children's Writing Past-Present and Future and MUCH MORE!
ALSO, one very special feature that I added to the conference when I started to volunteer 3 years ago, the Editors and Literary Agents pre-viewed the query letters and First 5 pages of the manuscripts for the authors who gave their verbal pitch.
If you can't be at the conference please plan to attend one next year. They are great events that get you networking.
