The Mississippi River Writers are hosting a spring writer’s conference in Dyersville, Iowa on Saturday, May 11th. During this all day conference attendees will learn how to develop characters that have depth, discuss what to consider when submitting work to large and small presses, and discover the steps involved in self-publishing. There will also be writing activities and time to share your work.
Why should you attend a writer’s conference? A writer’s conference gives you, the writer, the opportunity to learn about an aspect of writing giving you trouble, aren’t familiar with, or want to brush up on. Conference attendees learn not only from the presenters but other attendees. Most importantly, a writer’s conference gives attendees the opportunity to network with veteran and new writers, share what works and what doesn’t (those tidbits of gold about who people have used for editing, cover design, printing, etc), and spend the day doing what all writers like to do…write and talk about writing. Oh, and don’t forget to enter the writing contest. I wouldn’t want you to miss the chance to win a fabulous prize.
If you live near Iowa, and by near I mean within a day drive, come spend a Saturday learning and writing with a fun group of writers that enjoy what they do. To register click on the Mississippi River Writers link above and click on Conferences.
