“If You Can Only Attend OneWriters Workshop – Make It This One” One-of-a-kind writing conference for writers of all skill levels and genres.
Calhoun, Georgia — Calhoun Area Writers (CAW) and Rome Area Writers (RAW) today announced they have joined forces to host the 2019 Northwest Georgia Writers Conference on Friday Nov. 1, and Saturday Nov. 2, at Rock Bridge Community Church in Calhoun.
“We are all about promoting the craft of writing and offering key networking opportunities and writing-related instruction,” said Karli Land, founder and president of CAW.
The conference Keynote speaker is Steven James, a critically-acclaimed national bestselling novelist. Suspense Magazine named Steven’s book “Every Wicked Man” one of their “Best Books of 2018,” and says he “sets the new standard in suspense writing.” Publishers Weekly calls him a “master storyteller at the peak of his game.”
“In addition to our Keynote, we will also have workshops throughout the day, and an agent on hand to give feedback to participating authors,” said Land. “But we also do something unique that other conferences don’t do,” Land added. “We have speed presenters that speak on topics through speed sessions – or mini workshops – that will excite all attendees.”
“If someone’s a writer or a storyteller, they can spend a day learning from speakers and workshops. It’s about educating people, giving them a new way to approach their work, and growing their skills,” said John Schulz, president of RAW.
Friday night will feature a catered dinner and back-to-back performances by stand-up comedians. On Saturday, the literary fun begins!
Tickets to the conference are $35 for Friday, $95 for Saturday, and $120 for both days. Doors will open at 5 p.m. on Friday Nov. 1 and at 8 a.m. Saturday Nov. 2. Tickets and details are available online at NWGaWritersCon.com
