Registration is now open for the second annual “Conversations and Connections” conference in Washington, DC, on April 5 at the D.C. branch of Johns Hopkins University (Dupont Circle). Along with a great keynote speaker, this one-day conference offers the opportunity for “speed dating” with various editors of literary journals as well as a wide variety of panels on craft and marketing.
Here’s the official announcement:
The Second Annual Conversations and Connections will help you get the connections and information you need to take your writing — and publishing — to the next level. This year’s keynote speaker is Mary Gaitskill, author of the novels Veronica and Two Girls, Fat and Thin, and the story collections Because They Wanted To and Bad Behavior.
Our panelists are experts in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, writing for children, making connections, using the web, marketing, and everything in between. Over 30 literary magazines will be represented. Get the real deal straight from the editor’s mouth: your $45 registration fee includes the full day conference, plus face-to-face “speed dating” with literary magazine editors, a subscription to the lit mag of your choice, and a book by featured speakers.
