The Catholic Writers Conference Online is coming up. Register by Feb. 15th to attend your choice of events. All are welcome and there is no fee.
I will be doing a Power Blogging chat session at this conference in March 1 at Noon, but you don’t have to wait for me. This third annual Catholic Writers’ Conference Online, runs February 26-March 5, 2010.
Sponsored by the Catholic Writer’s Guild, the online conference is free of charge and open to writers of all levels who register before February 15, 2010. The event features writers, editors and publishers from across the globe.
Workshops and live online chats cover the gamut of writing topics from idea generation to marketing a published novel; traditional and self-publishing, article writing and fiction, and much more. “We have over eighty subject-matter experts giving their time to teach others–from the fledgling writer learning about plot to the experienced author wanting to better market their works,” said co-coordinator Karina Fabian. “We’re very grateful for the help of people like Helen.”
In addition, ten prominent publishers (Catholic, Christian and secular) will hear pitches, giving authors an unprecedented opportunity to chat personally despite living hundreds or thousands of miles away.
The CWCO has also added small critique workshops, where writers can get information and advice specific to their writing.
“CWG’s goal in creating these conferences is to help Catholic authors get published. In this economy, the online conference provides a great opportunity for Catholic writers to better their skills and jump forward in their writing careers. The cost is zero and the value is priceless. No Catholic writer should miss it,” said CWG Vice President Ann Lewis.
Although the conference is offered free of charge, donations are accepted; proceeds will go toward future conferences. To register or for more information, go to http://www.catholicwritersconference.com.
