Black Hawk Down at Baltimore Writers' Conference

The Baltimore Writers' Conference is coming up November 14 at Towson University.

Keynote address will be delivered by Mark Bowden of Black Hawk Down fame. It's been 10 years since the book was published. Bowden has gone on to write books about Pablo Escobar, the Iran hostage crisis, and the Greatest Game Ever Played. He is currently a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, and has written for the Atlantic Monthly, Sports Illustrated, and Rolling Stone. He teaches at his alma mater: Loyola University.

Poetry, screenwriting, freelancing, fiction, and getting published serve simply a sampling of the sixteen sessions available to attendees. Writers can also get "quick critiques" in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry by such experts as literary agent Jeff Kleinman, Baltimore Review editor Susan Muaddi-Darraj, novelists Elise Levine and James Magruder, and Washington Post Magazine editor Lynda Robinson.

Registration includes lunch and closing reception. Presented by Towson University, Johns Hopkins University, and CityLit Project, BWC is the area's premiere craft, business, and networking opportunity for writers. Learn more (and register) at the link below.
