About the Conference:
This one-day conference is designed to allow you to connect with industry professionals and other writers who have gathered to share their knowledge and love of writing. Each fall, writers (and would-be writers) of all genres come together to hear accomplished speakers and participate in workshops in order to hone their current skills and learn some new ones.
Whether you are looking for an editor, or hoping to learn more about the aspects of plot and character, you’ll find many wonderful and useful sessions that will inspire you.
Join us in Avondale, just southwest of Phoenix, for a day spent with others who are as passionate about writing as you are, and come away with tools and inspiration to take your own writing career to the next level.
Conference proceeds benefit The Friends of the Avondale Libraries & Recreation, a Not-for-Profit (501c3) organization.
