This weekend, I’ll be at the Broadleaf Writers Conference. I’m a volunteer board member of the Broadleaf Writers Association and I help put on this conference every year. It’s about helping writers write, and part of that is making a space for community. Writers sit alone in rooms talking to themselves and their characters, so it’s good now and then to get out and talk to other writers about themselves and their characters. If you’d like to join us, you can register online through Friday and at the door on Saturday and Sunday. http://broadleafwriters.com/4th-annual-broadleaf-writers-conference/
I am excited to announce the arrival of a new organization dedicated to helping writers write — the Broadleaf Writers Association! Go to the BWA website for more information. I’ve got skin in the game here, since I’m helping out on the board of directors as we launch this group and prepare for our first writers conference in September, 2016. Save the date – September 24-25 – and please join us then! Until then, happy writing!
