It's true that the annual Writer's Digest Conference is a super-powered conference devoted to writers getting their fiction and nonfiction published. Super stars of publishing and promotion are in attendance, including agents Donald Maass and Janet Reid, authors Hallie Ephron and Jonathan Maberry, promotion gurus MJ Rose and Dan Blank, and so many more.
Oh yeah, there's also a poet who will be in attendance. Her name is Jacqueline Woodson, and that name might sound familiar because of her memoir, Brown Girl Dreaming, that was the 2014 National Book Winner and New York Times bestseller.
Her name might also sound familiar as a result of her being named the Young People's Poet Laureate by the Poetry Foundation.
So you have every right to go to the Writer's Digest Conference and expect to find incredible instruction for writing fiction and nonfiction, for promoting your writing, for building a super successful writing career--this conference is tailor made for that.
But remember, there's a super awesome poet rocking the conference as well!
