Great Writers' Event Coming Up on May 18

This post is for my writer friends in the Charlotte, NC/Rock Hill, SC area. I received some information today from writer/editor/publisher Roxie Hanna about a writer’s intensive that is coming up in Rock Hill, SC. I will let Roxie tell you a bit about it!

Becky, I’d like to invite you and your readers to our upcoming South Carolina Writer’s Workshop Intensive (SCWW) event on May 18, 2013, Bridging the Publishing Abyss. The event is open to anyone who is a writer, interested in becoming a writer, or is just curious about the process of writing and getting published.

This one-day event will feature four speakers: Jonathan K. Rice, an award winning author, editor and publisher of the Iodine Poetry Journal; Lee Q. Miller, author, historian and an adjunct professor of Sociology, Anthropology and Gerontology on Aging, Death and Grief at Winthrop University; Roxie Hanna, editor, publisher and ghostwriter who this year has launched a traditional publishing firm featuring children’s books, fiction and non-fiction including poetry; and Craig Faris, a seventeen-time published author of short fiction, one-act plays and thriller novels.

We are offering workshop sessions for poets, children’s writers (picture book to YA), memoirists, fiction, and nonfiction writers. Sign up for up to four of thirteen of the one-hour sessions by visiting our website
http://www.rockhillscww.org/, or on Roxie Hanna’s blog, http://roxieh.wordpress.com.

Thanks Becky! I’d love to meet your readers, so remember to find me at the conference and introduce yourself! :)


Thanks for sharing this wonderful opportunity with us, Roxie. The event sounds fabulous, and your sessions sound especially interesting! (Roxie’s breakout sessions include: Children’s Picture Book Perplexities, Fabulous Fiction Falsehoods, Young Adult Enigmas, and Nonfiction Fibs.)
