The Ultimate Way to Spend Valentine’s Day

February 8, 2015

By Shannon Bell

Bell, ShannonAs writers, we spend our free time in front of the computer, furiously typing away on our next big story. Or we stare into oblivion trying to get our characters to speak to us. Isn’t it about time we take a break from all of this? Florida Writers Association has the ultimate way for you to spend Valentine’s Day.

On Saturday, February 14, there is the second annual “Day at the Bay” conference. This is going to be just how you want to spend Cupid’s holiday because there is a track on romance writing. If that’s too mushy for you, there’s also a track on fighting, where there will be talk about gun fighting, hand-to-hand combat, and much more.

As every good infomercial goes, “But wait, there’s more!” There’s a promotion going on right now where there’s the chance to get Friday night’s room at the Hilton Tampa Westshore for half off. This allows you to have a romantic prequel to Valentine’s Day and arrive for the mini conference well rested.

Once the conference is over, you can then take your valentine to Hemingway’s within the hotel or visit one of the countless romantic restaurants around the International Plaza and Westshore area of Tampa.

Did you know that even Hemingway himself gave the gold seal of approval on the conference? This means that it’s absolutely worth exploring!

Here are the details:

February 14, 2015. Registration begins at 8:30 am and final raffle drawings are pulled at 4:30 pm.

Held at Hilton Tampa Westshore, 2225 North Lois Avenue, Tampa, FL 33607

Check out the faculty and register  today. The shopping cart (the most convenient way to register) closes Thursday evening, but registrations will still be taken at the door.

Once you’ve booked your mini conference, send a copy to to take advantage of the half off hotel deal, but hurry, there are only a few spots for this!
