The people who make the magic happen

April 8, 2012

Magic happens at every Florida Writers conference when FWA members find their agents, meet their publishers, and get the scoop on the industry. So what better theme for this year’s event than “The Magic of the Pen”? Ah, we wish we could wave a magic wand and make the conference come together instantly; the fact is, our magic comes from hard work and lots of support.

The 2012 Florida Writers Conference, which will be held October 19-21 at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary, promises to be our most stimulating and “magical” conferences yet. A whole contingent of folks is working to make it the best conference in Florida:

  1. Faculty. The faculty, which is selected from among the industry’s movers and shakers, delivers a balance and range of workshops, pitch sessions, and interview opportunities.
  2. Sponsors, donors, and advertisers. This group defrays your costs, provides needed services, and helps to make the conference fun as well as productive.
  3. FWA volunteers. Our volunteers work year round to make each conference better than the last.

We’ll be featuring faculty and sponsors in future posts. For now, we want to thank some of the volunteers who make The Magic of the Pen possible. Below is a list of committee chairpersons and point people, complete with contact information. Feel free to contact them if you have a question or suggestion. If you have any problems, you can always shoot an email to Marketing: ConferenceMarketing@FloridaWriters.net.
