Mississippi River Writers is having a spring conference in Dyersville, Iowa on May 11th. The day will be filled with learning about writing, editing, and publishing. The three presenters will be Lyle Ernst, Kim Sigafus, and Anthony Wedgeworth. All three are authors that have written fiction and non-fiction, are self-published and traditionally published, and between the three of them have marketed books via hardcover, paperback, eBook, and audio. This trio of authors is ready to pass on their vast knowledge so you can learn from their mistakes. Conference attendees may enter a Writing Contest with submissions due by May 3rd with the winner announced at the conference. More details are available on their website. If you are new to writing and want to learn more about writing and how publishing works this is the place for you. Spend the day soaking in information, networking, and writing with people from all over the Midwest. I will be there for the entire day, go register and come say hi.
