Conference Spotlight: Southeastern Writers Association Writers Workshop

Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, Writers' Conferences.
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 21-25, 2009, at St. Simons Island, GA. DETAILS

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.


WHO WILL BE THERE?

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, NY Times Bestselling 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.
WHAT ELSE?

Manuscript evaluations are optional, and you get to meet with a pro one-on-one if you do an eval. 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 purple@southeasternwriters.com 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.

More than 50 literary agents will be
taking pitches at WD’s own conference
in New York, January, 21-23, 2011.

One Response to Conference Spotlight: Southeastern Writers Association Writers Workshop

  1. This will be my fourth year to attend SWA! It is a great conference for writers of all kinds. Not only do we learn much, but the conference is a good place to network and get encouragement from other writers.
