The Pikes Peak Writers Conference: 20th anniversary

(Gathered from Facebook)

This April, I am (hopefully) attending the Pikes Peak Writer’s Conference in Colorado Springs, at the Marriott Hotel. My fellow writers who have attended the conference have assured me of its quality, helpfulness, and potential. From what I understand, it is among the ten best conferences in the nation, and the friendliest as well.

April 19-22 marks a special occasion, for it is the 20th anniversary of the conference, and contains an abundance of opportunities for those authors looking for an agent to represent their novel, pitching a book to get a publisher’s attention, forge connections in the writing world, or simply to search for community and helpful advice on making yourself a more recognized and more professional writer.

If you’re interested in going, there will be a good number of high-profile speakers there, including agent Donald Maass, bestselling author Jeffery Deaver, novelists Susan Wiggs and Robert Crais, and many others besides.

Their official website has what you will need to learn if you decide to go: http://www.ppwc.net/html/ppwc.html

A lot of the volunteers and leaders are good friends of mine. This will be my first conference, but I look forward to it. There you can also register, apply for a scholarship if you can’t pay for the whole ticket, or donate to the Pikes Peak Writers or the scholarship fund.

I hope to see you there in April! Keep writing, and keep looking for the best stories.
