Hello again and Happy New Year!!
Can you believe it’s already January 2, 2019? Time’s a flyin’ so guess I’d better get moving.
Our annual writer’s conference theme this year will be “Why We Write…Giving Voice to the Voiceless,” which allows a wider assortment of possibilities for workshops and presenters . Along with topics aimed at young adults, teens and adults and tailored for writers at all stages of their writing, beginner, works in progress and published authors. But I’ll share a little more of what we’re planning for you all next time we talk.
To kick off the event off Pamlico Writer’s Group is proud and honored to have Katharine Ashe as our keynote speaker. Her topic will cover, “Write What You Desire.”
Adrienne Dunning, writer & publisher wrote this article which shares a smidgen more information about Ms. Ashe’s wide array of accomplishments and why you’ll want to attend.
Take a look.
