One-day local writing conference!

If you're within driving distance from Colorado Springs, or if you want to fly in, there's a great one-day conference coming up in three weeks.

The Peak Writing Conference will be held Saturday, February 5th from 8:00am - 4:00pm.

The keynote speaker is Karen Ball, Executive Fiction Editor for B&H Publishing Group. She'll be teaching three sessions on taming fiction dragons: You may not know it, but they’re there. Five fiction dragons hiding in your writing, just waiting to breathe fire and knock your readers right out of the story. But you can tame them! Bring your current WIP, and get ready to get down nd dirty. In these interactive sessions, we’ll take on the dragons together, and by the time we’re done, they won’t just be tame—they’ll be gone!

There will also be an author/editor panel and a Q&A.

The conference will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 13990 Gleneagle Drive in Colorado Springs.

I'll be there, will you?

What does "Taming Fiction Dragons" mean?

I wish I could make it but Colorado Springs is just a little far from Odessa. It sounds awesome!
