A mini-conference on poetry and short stories. In Venice. (Florida, that is.)
–by Ann Favreau
I’m delighted that there will be a Florida Writers Association mini-conference in my backyard of Venice on May 17. The added feature of an emphasis on poetry is a plus for me.
When I was in India and introduced myself in a small rural village as a poet, they clapped. Poets have stature there. This event is an opportunity to highlight the value of poetry and what to do with your poems and stories after you have written them. I look forward to networking with other writers and meeting the folks from FWA leadership.
This is one of seven mini-conferences that FWA is hosting in 2014. Mini-conferences are an economical way to grow your knowledge and network. Only $69 for FWA members, $89 for nonmembers. Continental breakfast, snacks, and lunch are included.
I look forward to seeing you and sharing our love for poetry and short stories with you at the event.
