John Curry, co-chair of this year’s Washington Writers Conference and a friend of STC WDCB, asked if I would post this information to our blog. Here you go, John. The conference looks awesome. I hope I can make it this time.

Living On Words: Get Inspired, Get Writing, Get Published!
The 2007 Washington Writers Conference
Location: the Cafritz Center at George Washington University
The plenary speaker is Peter Bowerman, author and self-publisher, who is known for his books “The Well-Fed Writer” and the “The Well-Fed Editor.” In addition to the opening speech, Peter will lead a workshop based on his books and will provide practical steps and tips on marketing and selling your writing.
Our keynote speaker is Francine Prose, award-winning author of 11 novels, including Blue Angel, a finalist for the National Book Award. Her latest book is Reading Like A Writer. She has also written four children’s books and co-translated three volumes of fiction. Prose is a contributing editor of Harper’s Magazine and writes regularly on art for The Wall Street Journal.
We are offering 14 different sessions throughout the day, covering everything from the practical aspects of writing to the creative process. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with agents (both fiction and non-fiction) and, most importantly, to network and learn more about this outstanding organization that supports writers in the greater DC area.
It’s all happening on Saturday, June 9, 2007, in the Cafritz Center at George Washington University. For more information on the conference and how to register, please visit http://www.washingtonindependentreviewofbooks.com/.
