networking with peers or agents and publishers, or just getting out of your dark cave and meeting other like minded people. I’ve met some of my favorite people at writer’s conferences.Many who I consider to be among the smartest people I know and others who are a bit coo-coo for cocoa puffs. Either way, I’ve always met interesting people, found inspiration and had a great time at our local conferences.
Spring in the northwest heats up with some educational and affordable local writer’s conferences:
April kicks off with one of my favorite conferences, Fieldsend Writers Conference, at beautiful Kiana Lodge on Bainbridge Island WA where this year, author Gail Tsukiyama will give the keynote address.
Also, In Coupeville WA the Write On Whidbey Conference with Garth Stein.
And in May is Wenatchee’s Write On The River with New York Times best selling author, Chelsea Cain as keynote speaker. And my friend Robert J. Ray will teach Starting Your Novel: A Map for Writing the First Draft.
In Redmond WA the NW Christian Writers
In Woodinville WA the Travel & Words Writers conference Travel Writers Conference
