Writers Conference Web Site Up and Running (So Register)

Author Roland Lazenby makes a point that's over Dan Casey's head.
The website for the Roanoke Regional Writers Conference, 2014 is up and functional. You can read about who's talking and register at the site (here). Remember, the last five have been sellouts and the
first one was not sold out only because we didn't have a limit.

This year's headliner is the truly gifted writer Sheri Reynolds from Virginia Beach. Sheri's keynote address is titled "Giggling Past the Funeral Home: A Look at What Makes Us Laugh," and her class is "Dreamwork for Writers: Using Your Dreams to Deepen Your Stories."

She will be joined opening night by novelists Carrie Brown and Rod Belcher, both of whom have hot new novels--Rod's a debut, Carrie's her sixth.

This is, once again, an impressive and deep lineup of writers from our region, continuing to demonstrate that our talent pool is full and overflowing.

Join us. The cost (two days, 24 classes, a wine reception, all the coffee you can imagine, lunch) is still $65 and the only consistent complaint we get is that we give waaaaaay too much for the money.
