Conference Spotlight: The 2013 PennWriters Conference (May 17-19, Pittsburgh)

An upcoming conference you should check out is the 2013 Pennwriters Conference (May 17–19) in Pittsburgh. PennWriters is an awesome statewide organization for writers that has regional chapters and statewide events. Having grown up in Erie, PA, I have spoken to the Erie group several times, and I was even fortunate enough to present at the PennWriters Conference in 2011.
