Kentucky Writers Conference
When: April 21, 2017 from 9am-3:30pm
Where: WKU South Campus (adjacent to the Knicely Center, where all Book Fest activities are held)
Bestselling authors and educators participating in SOKY Book Fest – including Lee Martin, Sallie Bingham, Dave Harrity, Jesse Donaldson, and more – will teach craft workshops about everything from plotting techniques to employing poetic language to getting published. The conference is free and open to the public, but seating is limited, so you must register in advance.
Theme: Polish & Publish
This year, many of the workshops cover preparing a work for publication, learning more about how to get published, and getting your work into the right hands to assure success. Each workshop leader writes across genres and has published multiple books, some with small presses and some through larger publishing houses. Get the feedback you need from experts in the field to be sure your writing is the best it can be before you submit!
We also offer a Writers Conference for Teens, a program developed specifically for area middle and high school students. Teachers interested in having their students participate will be able to register in March.
The Kentucky Writers Conference is made possible through the generous support of Dollar General.
