Conference has been cancelled

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of the Southeast Ohio Writers Conference.  Simply put, we didn’t have enough registrations to cover the cost of the event.  It’s unfortunate, but it happens.  I know many were looking forward to it, me included.  We had a great lineup of speakers and sessions for every type of writer.  Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in the conference or helped with the organization of it.

It’s almost time!

It’s almost time for the Southeast Ohio Writing Conference.  Don’t forget to register using our handy, dandy online registration form or, if you prefer, download a form, fill it out, and send in!  It’s that easy. 🙂

We also still have spots available for our manuscript pitch sessions with Kelly Quinn (Assistant Editor at Tor Books) and James O. Barnes (Managing Editor at Loconeal Publishing).  Those sessions are filling up fast, though, so get registered soon!

Session Information Updated

All but two of our current session offerings have been updated with titles and descriptions. I will be adding a separate page in the near future detailing the specifics for the pitch sessions.

Hopefully, if all goes well this weekend, I will have the registration form finished and ready by  early next week.  You will be able to register electronically or download a paper copy from the site and mail it in.

I’m getting excited for this year’s conference.  Are you? 🙂
