UNM Continuing Education’s 10th Annual Writers Conference takes place on Saturday, April 12, in the Student Union Building (SUB), located north of Popejoy Hall on the University of New Mexico’s main campus. The conference focus, “From Start to Sales,” features an impressive lineup of NYC speakers including authors and agents. Registration is $150.
Conference Coordinator and former SWW board member Sandra Toro’s 9 a.m. address, “Let SouthWest Writers Help You,” promises to be of interest to both current and prospective members. In addition, copies of “The Storyteller’s Anthology” will be available for purchase on the conference book table. Several current and former SWW members including Peggy Herrington, Kirk Hickman, Sherri Burr, Joanne Bodin and Melody Groves are also scheduled to speak.
Conference attendees who enroll by April 1st get a free one-on-one ten minute meeting with the editor or agent of their choice to “pitch” their writing project. After you register, contact Sandra Toro at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for your ten minute pitch.
