5 Reasons I Am Thrilled to Be at the Philadelphia Writers Conference

Philadelphia Writers Conference 2015

  1. ThPhiladelphia Writers Conferenceey Asked Me and I Could Go: For the last 5 or 6 years the Philadelphia Writers Conference has always happened the same weekend as the West Chester Poetry Conference. This year, not so much. And Poetry by the Sea happened a comfortable 2 weeks ago.
  2. The Faculty & Board Are Awesome: Keynote by Pretty Little Liars author Sara Shepard. Organization by Eileen di Angelo, James Knipp, Christine Weiser et al. Excellent workshops from people like Tom McAllister, Don Lafferty, Dan Maguire. I could go on…
  3. I Always Learn Something New: memoir reading suggestions such as Amy Butcher’s Visiting Hours, website optimization tips etc. etc.
  4. This Is a Book Buying Audience: good job I went home yesterday evening because I had sold out of copies of The Stolen From and had to bring some more today!
  5. There’s Free Coffee! 😉

    Oh Anna, you’re making me want to come back too. Sorry I missed the great lineup this year, including you and Dan. I’ts been a hard weekend for me too, the last few years, but with retirement right around the corner, I hope to have time for more conferences very soon.
