A great spa for your writing, with sections for all levels. I typically lead a Master Class for those with completed novel manuscripts. New sections include short stories and memoirs.
2017 Dates: April 12-15, 2018
This year I’ll be at the conference offering a hands-on workshop with limited enrollment.
I’m also part of an exciting new Writers’ Institute venture called PATHWAY TO PUBLICATION for anyone wanting to fast-track their writing in 2018 with the help of an experienced UW coach (like me!).

This is the Midwest’s premier writers’ conference. It’s is usually scheduled in April.
I’ll be on a panel about writing a mystery series. The conference has added new features this year, including a fun lunch using recipes from a novel (not mine this time), as well as Friday and Saturday night social events with readings from authors.
