Fabulous Writers’ Conference Coming in May

The DFW Writers’ 2014 Conference is just around the corner, May 3rd and 4th, and this years’ line-up of speakers, agents, and editors is full of promise for writers of all genres and skill levels. Last year was the first time I attended this conference and I highly recommend it to all word-smiths.

The two-day conference features a keynote by Jonathan Mayberry, over seventy break-out sessions on the craft of writing, panel discussions, and query letter/first pages critique sessions. The event culminates in the ever-popular query letter gong show.

Registration includes lunch (food is always a plus) and one free 10-minute pitch or consultation session with an agent or editor. Select from thirteen agents and three editors to best meet your creative writing needs.

And as if that isn’t enough, check out the preconference Friday workshops.
* Les Edgerton: “A Fiction Writer’s Workshop at the Bijou”
* Donald Maass: Writing 21st Century Fiction

Where: The Hurst Conference Center, Hurst, TX
When: May 3rd and 4th (pre-conference workshops on the 2nd)

Exciting new update! I'm joining agents Eddie Schneider and Jean Sagendorph and authors Les Edgerton and Bob Stewart on a nonfiction panel. I'll talk about opportunities in writing educational nonfiction.

Hope to see ya’ll there!
