Next weekend, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers presents an all-day education event open to attendance by both members and non-members of the Colorado-local organization. It's certainly not too late to sign up--and if you do, you stand a chance at winning free admission to the 2014 RMFW Colorado Gold Conference! Here are the details:
A Writer's Toolbox
When: Saturday, May 17, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Where: The Crystal Rose, 9755 E. Hampden, Denver
Cost: $75 for members, $90 for non-members (Early bird registration prices have been extended up to the event date)
Hannah Bowman of the New York-based Liza Dawson Associates Literary Agency presents this all-day workshop on the craft of writing. Bring a synopsis and the first five pages of your novel in progress so you can practice the lessons you learn.
You can also schedule yourself a 15-minute "speed date" with either Pam Nowak or Sean P. Curley. If you like, these authors will critique the first two pages of your manuscript. Or you can spend your appointment in a more general discussion of writing and publishing with them.
Nowak. Curley and Bowman embody a wide range of independent, small press and large publisher experience. Between the three of them you're sure to find some useful advice for your writing career.
Also on hand will be Who Else! Books, offering a fantastic selection of books from their Broadway Book Mall inventory. Ask them about signed and limited editions of books by Colorado authors!
Included in your registration for this event are breakfast, lunch, snacks and a chance at some sweet door prizes--among them the aforementioned free admission to the Colorado Gold conference, where you're sure to learn even more about writing and publishing, and do some networking besides. You've got until the day of the educational event, May 17, to register at these extended early bird prices, but why not register early? Contact "education" at "rmfw.org" and reserve your spot today!
