As you may know, I attend a lot of writers conferences and like to promote the events I will be at. Today I am doing something special, and promoting one I will not be at. It's Writers at the Beach: Pure Seaglass, a writers conference in Delaware. The reason: Proceeds of this event all go to charity.

Hosted by the Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild, a 501c(3) association, "Writers at the Beach: Pure Sea Glass" was founded in 2005 to raise money for, and awareness of, mitochondrial disease, a little known disease that affects as many as 1 in 2000 children.
Still, why a writers conference? Because unless this story gets told—and heard—the money for a cure will never be raised. Because we all have stories like this that need to get told for whatever reason. Writers at the Beach is about helping others to tell their stories.
WHO WILL BE THERE?
Flip Brophy and Douglas Stewart, two literary agents from Sterling Lord Literistic, a very cool NYC agency, will be taking pitches. A mix of published authors, some who have attended before and some new to the event, present workshops.
REASONS TO ATTEND
Overall, there are more than 30 workshops, a dozen panel discussions, and plenty of manuscript reviews! There is a keynote dinner at the Atlantic Sands instead (and the cost is included in your registration). There will be an open mic on Saturday following the reception.
100% of our net proceeds will be donated to Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children to help defray medical costs of those being treated there for mitochondrial disease.
