This Saturday (that’s tomorrow!), I’ll be presenting at the Berries, Books, and Bridges Writers Conference in at the Woodland Park Baptist Church in Hammond.
Hosted by the Creative Minds Writing Group, this conference attracts pre and post published writers from across the South. In fact, it’s a great conference for new writers to attend because it offers them the opportunity to talk to published authors in a setting that’s comfortable and engaging. I’ve been invited to attend this conference for the past three years, and I’m always delighted when I’m included again.
New York Times bestselling author Erica Spindler, who lives on the Northshore, will be this year’s keynote speaker. Erica has had written over 20 books and has been published in 25 countries. Her new release is Justice for Sara.
I’ll not only be following Erica, which alone is enough to cause me a wee bit of anxiety, I’ll be giving a general session for the first time. I’m going to be talking about Social Media, which seems to be changing overnight, not only in itself, but in the way it impacts writers and books. Other speakers include Lynn Shurr who will discuss e-books and Kathryn Martin whose topic is “I want to Write, but Where do I Begin?”
Breakout sessions include:
Young Adult- Chad and Logan Thompson Romance- Deborah Lynne
Mysteries- Steve Patrick Non-Fiction- Dave Berwick
By the way, this conference is worth attending just for the lunch! Always a great meal.
Go to the conference site to register (or you can do so at the door that morning) and for directions.
Hope to see you there!
