The Roanoke Regional Writers Conference, for the second straight year, is a sellout.
All 150 spots were gone by noon today, according to Christine Powell, who runs special programs for Hollins University and who helps operate the conference.
This year, we relied heavily on social media to get the message out and it has worked strongly to our advantage. We have a couple of media events coming up that will effectively be moot, since we can't sell any more spots.
I want to thank all of the faculty members, students and anybody else who helped with this. You spreading the word has made us a success again.
