Our conference also includes several emerging authors – stay tuned for additional info!

You do not need to be an experienced writer to attend. Our conferences have a reputation for very high quality speakers, collegiality, and a lack of competitiveness among attendees, so please do not be intimidated if you have not yet published much. Come join us and enjoy the supportive environment!
