After a long, arduous search, Darrah and Gregory have managed to hogtie, er, I mean convince, Judith Briles to do our Keynote Address on Saturday evening.
That’s a big deal, in case you didn’t know. Because Judith is known as The Book Shepard. She’s not only authored 31 books, winning numerous awards she co-founded Mile High Press. And she knows a thing or three about putting the story together.
AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing is a podcast which is downloaded over 250,000 times per month. Each August, she presents Judith Briles Unplugged, a 3-day exclusive “happening” for authors who want to create and put their Book and Author GamePlan into action. In the winter, she delivers PublishingAtSea.com, one solid week of workshops and fun – on the high seas!
There are still several spots available to attend the conference. It’s your chance to rub elbows with agents, editors, publishers, and fellow writers from all over the globe. And, because conference attendance is deliberately kept low, we do mean rub elbows. You’re guaranteed face-time.
The conference also features workshops with a well-rounded faculty covering all sorts of topics important to the writer. You get to pitch your work at no extra charge; that alone makes this conference stand out above others. There’s also the First Page Panels, wherein faculty listens to random first pages submitted by attendees, and then critiques them to assist in making that all-important first impression, getting that hook where it needs to be.
Now, why would you not want to attend?
