Margaret and I have been invited to participate in the 21st Ligonier Valley Writers' Conference on Saturday, July 26 at the Ligonier Valley Library. From their website:
Ligonier Valley Writers is a non-profit writers group in Southwestern Pennsylvania which encourages interest in the written word and the continued perfecting of the art and craft of writing.
We will be participating with three other SWPA literary journals in a feedback workshop with potential submitters. Margaret likened it to speed-dating, which I thought was a rather accurate comparison. Speed-feedback will give writers the opportunity to discuss their writing face-to-face with journal editors, as well as get the opportunity to ask questions about the submission process in general. We are very excited about this opportunity to work with local writers and encourage a dialogue between writers and editors. Additionally, there are a number of established writers that will be speaking about various genres including poetry, fiction, nonfiction as well as mystery.
If you are interested in attending the 21st Ligonier Valley Writers' Conference please check out their website and download the brochure. You also might consider joining the group as they have a regular calendar of informational events this fall. We would love to meet any of you from the area and work with you on your submission to Weave.
