Live Writing

Pickard Conference Room

You can't go to a writers conference without actually writing at the conference, can you? Join me for a series of prompts with encouragement from your fellow attendees. Listen to the prompt, write for a set amount of time, share your work by reading it aloud (if you want), listen to other attendees, and repeat. The number of prompts depends on who wants to share their work. All genres welcome. Seating is first-come, first-served for this session.

Register once (appreciated but not required) for the entire Writers Conference and come and go as you please. Separate registrations are required to attend any of the Critique Sessions. Check out the Writers Conference schedule at a glance or search our online calendar for in-depth descriptions.
