Writers' Conference in Blue Ridge, GA April 8-9

Local writers, in WNC and north Georgia, have a great opportunity in April to attend a writers conference near us. In Blue Ridge, GA, Carol Crawford has brought together a fine group of presenters who will cover poetry, nonfiction, fiction and writing for children.  

Stephanie Fretwell-Hill, agent, has vast experience in choosing and  selling books  for children. She  has worked for several publishers in this  field. Stephanie is the keynote speaker.

Robert Brewer, senior content editor of the Writer's Digest Community, will speak on poetry.
Steven Harvey, author of The Book Of Knowledge and Wonder, a Memoir, and  other nonfiction books, is  on the program.
Tara Lynne Groth, expert on social media, freelance writing, and marketing, is also a presenter.

Thanks for this, Glenda! Stephanie's talk will be about what REALLY happens inside a publishing house -- should be helpful to all genres. Also a great place to network!

Glenda Beall said...

Thanks, Carol. I am sure all genres will gain much from Stephanie's talk. What goes on in the publishing of a book is the mystery many of us want to solve. She will give us a leg up on how to publish and what to expect, I imagine.

Thanks for bringing these speakers to our area.

Is there any chance that you could put up a post after the conference for those of us who cannot go?

EC, that is a great idea. I surely will write about the conference next week. Thanks for your interest. I am behind reading blogs this week, but look forward to checking in on yours. I love the photographs and the insight to your country.
