Thank you for your interest in our 14th annual writers’ conference. Once again, we have assembled a variety of accomplished writers, editors, and agents who will present informative workshops, lectures, and panel discussions, addressing differing aspects of writing, editing, publication, and promotion. Past attendees have complimented our conferences on being both informative and inspirational.
This year, we’re pleased to announce that our special guests will be author Lynne Barret and agent Cricket Freeman and publisher Ben Leroy.
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 14 YEARS THE ENTIRE GULF COAST WRITERS CONFERENCE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY FREE!
They will join our accomplished faculty for another wonderful year of inspiration and education.
