More Than a Writers Conference

The Second Annual Conversations and Connections Convention will help you get the connections and information you need to take your writing — and publishing — to the next level.

This year’s keynote speaker is Mary Gaitskill, author of the novels Veronica and Two Girls, Fat and Thin, and the story collections Because They Wanted To and Bad Behavior.

Gaitskill will give a reading at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Spring Event tonight, and will be the keynote speaker at the conference Saturday.

Panelists at the conference are experts in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, writing for children, making connections, using the web, marketing, and everything in between.

More than 30 literary magazines will be represented.

Get the real deal straight from the editor’s mouth and advice specific to your work.

Your $45 registration fee includes the Friday night reading, full day Saturday conference, plus face-to-face “speed dating” with literary magazine editors, a subscription to the lit mag of your choice, and a book by featured speakers.

To learn more, visit the Conversations and Connections Conference website.

Hey Eric,

It was nice to meet you at the conference. I hope to see you out at one of the 510 Readings sometime.
