Seasons Come and Go

We are nearing the end of the conference season. I’ve had a wonderful year. I’m even catching up on some projects I’ve been way behind on. It feels good, but I’m definitely tired and not even close to done.

I’ve already started my 2020 schedule on this website, so folks can plan ahead. As I confirm more dates, I’ll list them.

The Craft of Writing Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is this Saturday, October 26th. Find more information here, or sign up as “going” on our Facebook event page. It’s going to be another great experience.

On my AWARDS page, I recently listed the winner of my middle grade fiction contest that I sponsor at the Ozark Creative Writers Conference.

The STAGE FRIGHT short story contest deadline was October 22nd, so I hope you sent your submissions on time. Good luck to all who entered!

I’m currently working on the 6th Annual Meet the Publishers! event, which will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday, March 28th. This year, I’ve added magazine and newspaper publishers to the lineup.

The 2020 Read. Write. Share! Writers Weekend is scheduled for April 24-26 in Little Rock, Arkansas, so put that one on your calendar, too. (Website coming soon!)

I hope to see you this Saturday at the conference in Tulsa!
