Episode 26: CONFERENCECAST 2010


The WV Writers ConferenceCast 2010 (a.k.a. Episode 26) is now online.

In it we reveal the full list of presenters for the 2010 Summer Conference. We'll also have information on the guest editors who will be there as well as on the pitch sessions and one on one critique sessions they are offering.

We'll also reveal the exact date we will begin pre-registration for the conference, (as well as when Cedar Lakes will begin accepting pre-registration forms for rooms and meals). A hint: it's VERY soon.

This week (shhhh!)

There is a rumor going round, that I may or may not have started, that says this Friday's episode of the WV Writers Podcast will be chock full of information concerning the upcoming Summer Conference.

The rumor mentions something about a full list of presenters being revealed.

It continues that information on guest editors and the pitch and one on one critique sessions they will be conducting will also be revealed.

It goes on to say that workshop descriptions and quite possibly a full schedule are in the works for release in the very near future.

It wraps up that the exact date when registration will be opened is also a revelation to be imparted.

One might say that it will be a very good episode to download and that one would be wise to do so this Friday (or perhaps late Thursday if one subscribes with iTunes).

Just what I heard.

Bonus Show 8: Writer's Toolkit


Our 8th bonus show is extry short, but is important if you're going to be in the Charleston area on February 13 and if you're interested in improving your writing.

The Writer's Toolkit event will be taking place at the cultural center, featuring free writing workshops for fiction, nonfiction, poetry and nonfiction research. The event is brought to you by the WV Division of Culture and History in collaboration with the WV Library Commission. You can find specific details about it at our BLOG, but get an overview by listening to the bonus show.

PLEASE NOTE: According to the Charleston Gazette, State Poet Laureate Irene McKinney will not be able to attend the annual Writers' Toolkit as originally scheduled due to weather concerns, but the program will still continue with the authors below and poet and essayist Doug Van Gundy will step in to take the workshop spaces left by McKinney.

As an added bonus to the bonus, you also get to hear the host of the show play his brand new cigar box guitar and the cohosts of the show supply their critique.
