From the Harford County Public Library:
“It was a dark and stormy night” is no way to start the next great American novel! Join the Harford County Public Library and writing friends at the Just Write. Writers Conference on Sunday, September 28 at the Bel Air Library and learn how to make your writing the best it can be. Just Write. brings in 17 accomplished regional authors and small print publishers, as well as agents to share their insights and experience with community writers of all levels and genres. Choose five workshops from among 30 options of discussions and presentations that will give practical, relevant information and examples. The $65 registration fee covers the sessions, lunch, snacks and access to writers all day long.
If that isn’t enough, the library is offering more opportunities to get you on your way to writing glory! A wrap-up reception will be held following the conference to talk informally with presenters and writers. Novelist Erika Robuck, author of Call Me Zelda, Hemingway’s Girl, and Fallen Beauty will be the guest speaker, sharing her story of the journey from idea to publication. You may also have your own manuscript critiqued by one of the days’ speakers and meet with them for a one-on-one session to go through the notes. Both of these options are available for an additional fee with registration or as stand-alone events – if you can’t spend the day, you still have an opportunity to participate!
Pre-registration is required to attend the Just Write. Writers Conference, and for manuscript reviews and the After Session Reception. Registration is available online only beginning August 18th at 10:00 am. Seating in individual sessions and overall is limited so it is important to register early for first choices. Registration closes at end of business September 22, 2014. Go to www.HCPL-JustWrite.com to more information and to register. Contact Bethany Hacker at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about the Conference or registration process.
