National Writers' Empowerment Conference is Moving Beyond the Dream
Registration is underway for the 2010 National Writers’ Empowerment Conference and Book Expo to be held on Saturday February 20, 2010, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, in Virginia Beach , VA.
Hundreds of novice and seasoned writers from all across the country will converge to the Fifth Semi-Annual National Writers’ Empowerment Conference and Book Expo. Founded by prolific writer and self-publishing guru Renee Bobb (www.reneebobb.com), the conference is billed as an event where aspiring authors can not only learn about the book publishing industry, but promote and market their works as well.
In keeping with her prior promise, Renee has committed to her many loyal clients and vendors to open up the conference to reach more people with proficient customer service and genuine passion for the literary world. Renee continues to maintain her primary goal of helping God's people to write, market and publish books. Accordingly, with the birth of the National Writers' Empowerment Conference and Book Expo, Renee has decided to no longer affiliate with the National Christian Writers Conference as she expands her reach.
This year’s theme is: “Moving Beyond the Dream.” In analyzing the feedback from past conferences it was noted that participants are not only motivated to write, market, and publish their books, but they are putting the information they gained into action. Everyone has a story to tell but very few know the in’s and out’s of how to write a book and get their books on the market. With the help of technology and the knowledge of publishing professionals, anyone can master the art of writing and publishing a book.
The National Writers’ Empowerment Conference is uniquely designed to train the aspiring author how to make the transition from writer to published author. This event provides the information, resources, and training that authors need to write, publish, and market their books. Conference participants will have an opportunity to hone their writing skills in sessions led by seasoned authors, editors, and publishers.
