As a former participant, now board member, I’m excited to announce registration for the 23rd annual Mendocino Coast Writers Conference is open and busy.
Our three-day, workshop-style conference sits against a forest and ocean backdrop. Limited to 100 participants, every year writers are drawn to hone their craft within our supportive community. As always, our faculty of notable authors are also superior teachers. This year’s Master Class in “Short Fiction,” is taught by award-winner, Peter Orner. The full faculty list, brochure, and schedule can be downloaded and printed from the website /”Our Conference” tabs.
Genre: Short-fiction (Master class), Memoir, Poetry, Novel, Short-fiction (standard class), and Emerging Writers (fiction or non-fiction).
Afternoons: short lectures, readings, and panels: A social media expert, editors, agent, and Paths to Publishing success stories (which I’m on, which means I’ll have a book out!).
Partner Packages and one-on-one meetings with agent and faculty are available.
We’ve kept our traditional scholarships and added a new slot – 5 Under 25 for participants 16-25 years of age. Apply for a contest. Winners appear in our online conference journal, The Noyo River Review. Check our website for deadlines and details.
Join us. Three days of inspired mentors, rigorous craft, and unmatched setting with friends-old and new. Can’t come but want to support other writers? Consider donating to one of the scholarship programs. All gifts are tax-deductable. Also guaranteed to unlock writers block, prevent computer crashes, promote one new idea, and engender good writing karma.
And don’t forget to back up your work!
