A Small Conference Delivers

Sometimes small really is beautiful. Take conferences. Ever feel overwhelmed and lost at those big rallies? Me too. Often a small conference gives you more opportunities to talk to pros and new friends–while still delivering that ignition point for your writing.

Thus my enthusiastic endorsement for the May 14-15 Write on the River conference. Check us out. On the beautiful campus of Wenatchee Valley College, tucked between the Cascade foothills and the Columbia river. Come over for the day and a half conference, and then tour our wine country. It’s a 2.5 hour drive from Seattle. Registration is only $140 for both days. Twelve workshops, agent and editor appointments.

NOTE: Bob Mayer workshop now 2.5 hours in morning, for in-depth coverage. Louise Marley will teach an additional class: The Telling Detail: Research in Fiction at 3:30 p.m.

The nonfiction book: Craig Welch

Keynote: Bestselling thriller author Chelsea Cain
