From Jim Tritten, Conference Coordinator:

Truman Capote once commented, when asked his opinion of the work of Jack Kerouac—who never looks back after committing words to paper: “That’s not writing, that’s typing.”

Join us this September for the writing conference of the year, featuring sessions with master authors, editors, and teachers whose only goal will be to help you on your journey to become the author that you can be.

Included are presentations and panel discussions on such devices and conventions of creative writing as developing characters and conflicts, the elements of memoirs and biographies, planning and structuring of fiction and non-fiction books, honing your craft, and the importance of editing.

The featured speakers include award-winning authors together with members just like you who will share their secrets from a life spent in the literary trenches. And… the Redline Coffee Cup: you will be given the opportunity to send a chapter of your work in progress for review by a published author who will in turn have a private one-on-one session with you.

The Military Writers Society of America’s conference is one of the most author-accessible events in the U.S. You will be able to meet and have in-depth conversations with award-winning published authors. SouthWest Writers is renowned as one of the finest writing groups in the country, a collection of authors who help authors.

So, if you’re ready to take your work to the next level, to move from typist to writer to author, join us in Albuquerque this September.
