Registration for Writers at the Beach Now Open

Time to register for the fabulous Writers at the Beach conference. Alas, I won’t be there this year, but here’s just a short list of some of the more than 3 dozen writers, editors, and agents who will be attending: Robert Bausch, Sheri Reynolds, Liam Callanan, C.M. Mayo, and Carolyn Parkhurst.

This conference is special because of its charitable connection: “we will donate 100% of our net proceeds to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children to help defray medical costs of those being treated there for Mitochondrial disease.

Given in memory of Sam and Zachary Juhlmann [conference founding organizer Maribeth Fischer’s nephew’s] , the funds will be used to defray the numerous and often uninsured costs associated with the treatment of mitochondrial disease.”

And, did I mention that this conference takes place at the BEACH? Win-win-win…how can you go wrong?
