All Write Now! Writer’s Conference


This week has gone to the  . . . well I am not insulting anyone or anything.

About an hour ago I started writing a wonderful post about the writing conference, but I lost it because I didn’t save during that hour. So this is my second, much shorter blog blurb about it.


  • JULY 11, 2015  from 8 A to 5 P

With workshops, networking, and lots of inspiration, but in my last theatrical flourish at the end, it was deleted.  (No, of course I didn’t save it periodically during the hour)


Poetry, fiction, and flash fiction writing contests with a “Seconds” theme.  You interpret the use of the word seconds, for more information check out the rules.  Oh, and those of the nonfiction genre, you have a contest as well, thanks to Carol and John Fisher.
