2009 Peak Writing Conference

I know that a couple of people have already posted about this recently but I’m excited about our chapter hosting this event and I don’t want anyone to miss it. It’s this Saturday, February 28th, doors open at 9 am to begin check-in. If the weather is bad, we’ll make a determination and let you know if we have to move the conference to our snow date of March 7th.

We have three awesome speakers who will teach and inspire us in our writing, author Donita K. Paul, author Lisa Tawn Bergren, and agent Beth Jusino. We are planning to record the session, but I’m in charge of that and I’m about as untechie as you get. I could give you a list of a dozen people or so who will verify this but I won’t bore you with that. You’ll just have to trust me.

Anyway, I’m going to get together with a tech person at my church this week to learn how to do all that. When I have succeeded (I have to have confidence), then we will make a CD of the sessions we get permission to record and offer that CD for sale. So whether you attend the conference or not, we are hoping to have the CD available for purchase.

Besides our authors and the CDs, we will have paid critiques you can sign up for to be completed via e-mail at a later date. You can pay for the critique at the conference and send in the selection to be critiqued later. We will not be doing any critiques at the conference.

We have autographed books to give away and other freebies. Anyone attending the conference who would like to sell books at our book table is welcome to do so. Download the form and bring it with you. Let Tiff know if you will be bringing books so she can have a space for you.

We will also be announcing our speaker line-up for next year.

Then to end the whole event we will have a book signing. This will include the speakers as well as any attendees who want to sign their books for people.

We do have limited space and limited food, so if you are planning to come and plan to pay at the door, let us know so we can hold a spot for you.

I look forward to seeing you there! :-)

Sounds fabulous. Just don't have the funds right now. I hope to get the tapes.

Wish I could be there. I think you have a great lineup of speakers. Definitely praying for all of you.

I wish I could go, but my money magnet seems to have reversed to opposing poles. Grrr.
