Update from the President:
Best wishes to all. I hope you are writing, reading, and hanging out with other writers while enjoying the beginning of summer.
RE: Flathead River Writers Conference
Conference plans are ahead of schedule. Last week, all of the one-on-one appointments with Agent Bob Mecoy and Editor Ben Loehnen were filled by the first twenty-four paid registrants who had requested an appointment. We have a waiting list in case anyone drops out, so you can still submit a request. For those who are unable to make an appointment, the conference is small enough that you will likely be able to speak with the experts on breaks, at lunch, and at the Saturday night social event.
If you would like to participate in the First Impressions option at the conference, check out the details on this website. It’s a great opportunity to have your first manuscript page, read aloud anonymously and get a verbal critique from the presenters.
We already have 40+ people who have registered to attend both conference days. Registration is available online or by mail-in with a check and the information tab on the brochure. Be sure to accurately complete the data for proper details to assure receiving a brochure next year. Reminder, attendance is limited to 100.
We have had some great speakers each month along with our guru Dennis Foley who presents the first Thursday. On June 6th, Dennis’ topic is Dialogue. Hope to see you there.
Fantasy Author Jess Owen and Mystery/thriller Author Deb Burke are speaking at various venues in June. Click on Schedule on the website menu bar at the top of the page for presentation information.
Please let me know if you have requests for topics or presenters. I received a recent request for more presentations and details on indie self-publishing and will be working on that.
