Description

Roanoke Regional Writers Conference

January 25-26, 2019

(snow date: February 1-2, 2019)

Welcome to the 12th Annual Roanoke Regional Writers Conference, the perfect place to learn, grow, and connect with other writers!

We kick things off on Friday night with introductions and a keynote featuring award-winning author, R.S. Belcher. He’ll share the “Before and After” of his journey in the publishing industry, and how writing has always been a part of him. Long before the sales and contracts comes the love of writing, which gives us the ability to handle the climb and struggles in our personal and professional lives. Belcher discusses writing as a coping skill for the things and events in his life, and how that has led to his success.

Following the keynote, we’ll have a “Couch Q&A” with a few of our presenters. This includes an open forum, so bring plenty of questions!

Saturday begins with registration at 8:30 a.m., and classes starting at 9 a.m. Class topics vary from fiction and nonfiction, journalism, editing, publishing (traditional and self-publishing), poetry, and more. Be sure to bring pen and paper, as well as any writing samples you might want to share in particular classes.

In addition, we proudly promote our writing community through our Facebook group. I highly encourage our writers to connect with others, something we like to call “Tribe Vibe.” Writing is a yearlong process and our group promotes discussion, critiques, and more. We look forward to growing our tribe and strengthening our friendships with such talented, hardworking writers!
