25th Annual WCCW Conference.

Another great conference has come to a close!

In spite of the many challenges faced by all, attendance was greater than we had expected, participation was enthusiastic, and each session was  informative and enlightening.

Author Meg Dendler led a morning and afternoon session focused on writing for children and running with inspiration.

Author JC Crumpton spoke on writing mysteries and world building.

Author Dot Hatfield led a session on playwriting and developing dialogue.

The current crisis made it difficult for some to travel to Central Arkansas for the Conference. You were greatly missed. It’s not too early to make plans for next year! (September 4, 2021)
