Last Call

My ParkerAttending a writers conference is a great way to learn more about writing and publishing. As an added benefit attendees can network with other writers and learn from them also. Friendships and writing partners are born during these conferences. Mississippi River Writers has extended the registration deadline to May 6th for their writing conference in Dyersville, Iowa on May 11th. I will be traveling to Iowa for this event and you can register on Mississippi River Writers website if you would like to attend.

The topics covered will include:

  • Developing Characters
  • Pros and cons to submitting manuscripts to large vs. small publishing companies
  • Self-Publishing from start to finish
  • Group writing activities
  • Share your work with a group for critique

I hope to see you there!

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.
