Evanston Writer's Workshop Conference

Recommended Posts

Exciting things are happening with the Evanston Writers Workshop Conference August 24 – 26, 2012. We are one of the best multi-genre conference in the Midwest.

We have moved our Conference to the beautiful Orrington Hotel in downtown Evanston. For people who may wish to stay there, they are offering us half off their rack rate!

USA Today Bestselling author Jade Lee will be headlining, along with multiple award winning and New York Times Bestselling science fiction fantasy author Jody Lynn Nye. Ms. Nye will also be offering a 4 hour master class on the Friday before the conference.

Non-fiction editor Kelly Bale and in-house publicist Danielle Jackson from Sourcebooks will be there to share industry knowledge with you.

Local authors, Sherrill Bodine, Laurie Brown, Libby Fischer Hellmann, Patricia Rosemoor, Jennifer Stevenson, and more, will impart extensive knowledge on craft, getting published, and storytelling.

Workshops include:

• Polishing up your pitch

• Memoir - Writing from the heart

• Q&A with an In-House Publicist

• Creating and marketing a graphic novel

• 7 sentences to a practically perfect synopsis

We are happy to announce the creators and writers of the graphic novel “Whispers From the Void” will be sponsoring our kick-off cocktail party Friday night.

We will also host a book signing open to the public, so any published authors that would like to attend, please contact our author liaison tina@evanstonwritersworkshop.org.

Our contests are still open. Last year all of our winners received contracts.

So if you have a work of unpublished fiction, submit it for the Evie™ contest.

If you had a book published in 2011, submit it for the Bard™.

Winners will be announced at our Award Luncheon on Saturday during the conference. Hurry, contests close at the end of the month!

Space is limited, so register today. Remember, Evanston writers Workshop is a 501©(3) not for profit, so all registrations and contest entries are tax deductible. We do battle for the writer!
