The Bay to Ocean Writers Conference will be held Saturday, Feb. 22, at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, Md. Registrations are still being accepted at www.baytoocean.com for this daylong event which features 24 sessions and workshops for writers at every level.
All aspects of the craft and business of writing will be addressed by best-selling authors, award-winning poets, essayists, publishers, and marketing and digital media specialists, among the many presenters.
Topics include the craft of writing - fiction, poetry, mystery, memoir, magazine features; publishing, including self-publishing; the business of writing; digital issues - blogging and using social media; and how books get made into films. One-to-one manuscript reviews by published authors are available by appointment.
Conference fees are $115 for adults and $55 for students with ID. Register soon, as the BTO conference has sold out early for the last seven years. ESWA, the Eastern Shore Writers Association, sponsors the conference.
