Whether you write fiction, poetry, essays, articles, or short stories, there is an art to stringing together words to elicit a certain response and reaction from your readers. The 8th Annual Northern Colorado Writers Conference, April 26-27 at the Fort Collins Hilton, centers around the idea that all good writing emerges from those writers who have the heart of an artist.
This two-day event provides you the opportunity to focus on the craft for two days and breathe new life and color into your writing. Industry professionals from all over the country will be sharing their knowledge and expertise in the 27 workshops being offered and the agent/editor round tables.
The conference welcomes all levels of writers; those just starting out, to those who are well-established. To ensure an intimate conference experience, registration is limited to 125 writers.
This year features keynote speaker, actor and director, Andrew McCarthy. From Pretty in Pink to National Geographic Traveler, McCarthy will share how he added award winning travel writer and author to his list of accomplishments. His recently released memoir, The Longest Way Home, has been well received by critiques.
