Like WOTR For Chocolate


This past weekend marked the sixth annual Write On The River writing conference in Wenatchee, WA. I attended for the first couple of years, missed a couple while I was away from the area, and have been behind the scenes for the last two. This is a top-notch event. To paraphrase one of our attendees, it would make cities three times our size envious. It was useful to see things from all perspectives. As agent/editor appointment coordinator last year it was good to see the progress certain budding authors have made in the past year. As a writing group member who has been in absentia for the last few months it was great to catch up with my other scribes. As a board member it was exciting to see the authors we have talked about all year come to life. And as a writer it was both useful to receive excellent information from long-time professionals and inspirational to hear encouraging words from folks who are truly in the know. I can’t wait to see who we’ll bring in next year. Check out some of this year’s fabulous presenters:
