In May 2015 aspiring writers will convene to learn and be challenged in the areas of writing, editing and publishing. I attended the Words in 3 Dimensions Conference last year and found it wildly valuable, plus a great opportunity to connect with other literary artists. With so many good memories in my pocket, it was an honour to be asked to present at the 2015 event.
Here is information about Words in 3D and the two sessions I will be teaching:
May 22 – 24, 2015
Chateau Lacombe Hotel
Registration opens February 1, 2015
