Conference Spotlight: Southeastern Writers Association Writers Workshop

I’m giving an early shout-out to a June conference at which I’ll be presenting: the Southeastern Writers Association 34th Annual Writers Workshop. It all goes down from June 2125, 2009, at St. Simons Island, GA.

The beach in summertime. Do I seriously need to go on? It’s a four-day conference, during the week—giving you an awesome excuse to miss work (bonus!). The conference is nicknamed “The Maui of the Southeast,” and good lord, I hope that nickname holds true.

Check Out These Great Upcoming Writers Conferences:



For starters, agent extraordinaire Mollie Glick of Foundry Literary + Media. Mollie handles a variety of fiction and nonfiction, and even a juvenile work or two. She will be presenting on nonfiction book proposals. 

Also: Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author, teaching advanced fiction; Jo Kittinger, writing for young readers; Cheryl Norman, novel writing; I will be presenting on the publishing business and scriptwriting; and there’s many other presenters so check the website.


Manuscript evaluations are optional, and you get to meet with a pro one-on-one if you do an evaluation. Also, there are 14 cash prize contests.  Contests include the following categories: novel, short fiction, young adult fiction, poetry, limerick, writing for children, nonfiction, inspirational, romance, speculative fiction, humor, holiday inspiration, first time attendees, and publication.

For more information, email or call (864)494-0412.

If you look on a map, you
will see that Georgia’s coastline
is teeny tiny. Serious, Georgia got
ripped off in this deal. But it definitely
seems to make the most out of the
little coastline and beaches it does have.
