Here’s some great news!
Left Coast Writers will receive 10% off on the Intensive Writing Weekend for Y/A and Middle Grade Readers (7/16-7/17/16), the Mystery Writers Conference (7/28-7/31/16) and the Travel Writers Conference (8/11-8/14/16).
I’ve been faculty at all of these conferences at one time or another, and I’m happy to report that they are incredibly informative and loads of fun. My favorite, of course, is the Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographer’s Conference. I attended the very first one. Winning the essay contest landed me in Wales, my grandfather’s native land, and at the home of literary giant, Jan Morris, whose work I’ve always admired. Really, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. Plus, I’ll be on hand to answer questions and offer advice..
You’ll find all of the conferences listed on the Book Passage website, but here’s more info on the Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference:
The Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference has an extraordinary, international reputation among publishers, editors, and writers. This conference will be held August 11-14.
Now in its 25th year, this four-day Conference offers an array of writing and photography workshops in the morning, a full afternoon of panels and discussions, and evening faculty presentations. The faculty includes publishers, magazine editors, photographers, travel essayists, and more. There are hours of informal interaction between faculty and participants during lunch and in discussions that often last late into the evening.
Take a look at this year’s astounding faculty:
