|This was a panel discussion on publishing from last year. Liz Long is at the right, me standing left.|
Liz has helped recruit the teachers and put together all the elements for the website (which Linda Martin designed) and it is now operative, here: https://www.hollins.edu/academics/roanoke-regional-writers-conference/. You can learn who's teaching, who's speaking, who's singing and the like and you can register (it's $65 for sessions Friday and Saturday, lunch and all the coffee you can drink).
The conference has helped create a cohesive and functioning network of writers in our region and gives professional writers--and those who aspire to become pros--the chance to talk to each other and exchange ideas.
