you are looking for an economical writers conference, I’ll be on the faculty
for this short course at Rose State College in Midwest City OK (Outskirts of
Oklahoma City). I’ve been there several times, and it is a small conference
with great facilities packed with excellent presenters, is economical and full
of content.

Last year’s Short Course was attended by more than two hundred people. This
year the College will expand the program with more presenters, more agents, and
more contest categories. Organized by New York Times-bestselling author William
Bernhardt, this conference will bring some of the nation’s most successful
writers and literary agents to Oklahoma.

More than thirty published writers, agents, editors, and others in the
publishing industry will present at the Short Course, led by Guest-of-Honor
Jacqueline Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean, the first book
selected for Oprah’s Book Club, and John Wooley, Oklahoma author of more than
thirty books of fiction and nonfiction. Authors will share their secrets,
agents will provide one-on-one consultations with writers, and editors will
talk with attendees interested in writing for their publications.

Whether you write fiction, poetry, memoir, or creative nonfiction, this
workshop will have something to help you grow as a writer and publish your
work. This Short Course will explore all aspects of why this is the best time
to be a writer.
