Writers, mark your calendars. The James River Writers Conference is celebrating its 11th year as one of the most prestigious gatherings of published authors, literary agents and editors in the country with a two-day even that will inspire and educate writers on the rise.
The James River Writers conference returns to Richmond on October 19 and 20 with an impressive lineup of literary professionals, writing workshops and opportunities for aspiring writers to pitch their book ideas, hone their skills and connect with nationally recognized authors and publishers.
Year after year, the conference is lauded for its remarkable programs and its noteworthy influence on the writing community. It’s no wonder why hundreds of people have been flocking to central Virginia each fall since 2003.
Definitely check this out if you are in the area. A friend of our blog will be speaking at some panels throughout the weekend (Samantha Lien – be sure to add her session(s) if you see her on the list!!) and it sounds like a great opportunity to network, learn some new things and have fun – all at the same time!
Registration for the annual conference is open, and writing sessions are already filling up. Find more details and a full list of programs at JamesRiverWriters.org.
