The 2017 White County Creative Writers Conference is in the books! On Saturday, September 2, more than 50 writers from all over Arkansas came together at Harding University for an outstanding day of training, sharing, and networking.
Conference seminars included a session about the importance of writing your memories and favorite stories, by Dr. Frank W. Brown; essentials of picture book development and writing poetry for children by Peggy Archer; and strategies on how to avoid rejection and redlines by Shannon Taylor Vannatter.
These talented professional writers and our enthusiastic conference attendees made the 22nd Writers Conference one of our best ever!
A popular feature of each year’s conference is the writing competition and the awards presentation. This year more than 235 entries from Florida to Alaska competed for monetary prizes in 20 contests. (Click here for a list of contests and winners.)
Special thanks to all who attended the conference and to all who entered our contests.
By the way, It’s not too early to begin making plans to attend next year’s conference: September 1, 2018.
Here’s to another year of great writing!
