It’s a mini-conference, Saturday April 20 in Altamonte Spring. You should be there.

February 17, 2013

It’s tax season. Sure, it’s awful, but you might get a refund. And if you do, what better way to use it than to attend the Florida Writer’s Association second-annual Bird’s Nest Miniconference in Altamonte Springs, Florida? Any one-day conference that features writer Adrian Fogelin as its keynote speaker, with Vic DiGenti’s full-day workshop on crime writing is definitely worth checking out.

But wait…there’s more!

  • Commercially successful e-book author Ben Hale tells you what you need to know about Kindle Marketing.
  • Pitch and query coach Veronica H. Hart tells you what you need to know about your pitch and query.
  • Award-winning memoir author Patricia Charpentier explains what you need to know to make your memoir better.
  • Poet and editor Peggy Miller helps you take your poetry to the next level.
  • FWA President Chrissy Jackson teaches about non-fiction writing.
  • Picture book author Rob Sanders helps you with your picture book questions.

The miniconference also features agent Saritza Hernandez of the Corvisiero Literary Agency. Her primary interests are intercultural romance, GLBT-themed YA works, historical romance with emphasis on Ancient Egypt, Caribbean/MesoAmerican, steampunk and cyberpunk romance, GLBT themed romance and general fiction, science fiction and fantasy romance, and erotica.

And if that weren’t enough, if you’re interested in this year’s Royal Palm Literary Awards competition, you’re covered with RPLA chair JW Thomspon, explaining the rules, and three RPLA winners, Beta Kantarjian, Bruce Kubec, and Joan Levy, covering writing for the RPLA.

For more information, and to register, check out the FWA conference page. You can register online or use the old-school approach.

The price is just $59 for members and $79 for non-members. An interview with an agent is $25.

It’s everything you need in a miniconference and it’s right in your back yard.

You know, if your backyard is really big and shaped like Florida.
