Don’t Miss the AR Writers Conference, June 3

This one-day conference covers territory important to writers. Two keynoters: Tommy Hancock, “Preparing Your Manuscript to Pitch” and Andrea Campbell, “Creating Content: Break-in, Connect, Become a Regular.” My interests are: “Writing Non-Fiction” with Janis F. Kearney and “Poetry in Motion” with Jim Barton. I usually skip the poetry sessions–but Jim Barton is always good. www.Arkansaswritersconference.org.  AWC, June 3, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Little Rock, AR.
