Conversations & Connections Conference: A Bargain at Any Price, but Especially at $55!

I highly recommend this conference—lots of bang for your buck! I attended the keynote address last year with Mary Gaitskill—she was inspiring and interesting (read more here). This year’s keynoter is short story writer Amy Hempel…another fave of mine.

Note: I’m not entirely a neutral party, as this year I’ll be speaking on a panel about point-of-view in the novel. But really, where else can you get a day of fun AND instruction AND a book AND a lit journal subscription AND a “date” with a lit journal editor for only $55???

Don’t delay…this conference has sold out every year.

Join us on April 11, 2009 in Washington, DC for the third annual Conversations and Connections Writer’s Conference.

Conversations and Connections will help you get the connections and information you need to take your writing — and publishing — to the next level. The conference will take place in downtown DC on April 11, 2009.

Registration is only $55, and includes the full day conference, one ticket for “Speed Dating with Editors, a book, and a literary magazine subscription.

This year’s conference will expand the range of options available in our breakout sessions, with panel discussions and craft lectures on issues that matter to writers, like fighting writer’s block, grants for writers, online publishing, knowing when to take or leave advice and feedback on your writing, and other issues. Our panels include topics like novel POV, agents, and sentence power, as well as more cutting edge fare such as flash fiction and writing sex scenes.
