Wenatchee, WA —Write On The River has opened registration for its annual writers’ conference, scheduled for May 16-18.
The weekend-long event kicks off with a keynote address by Beautiful Ruins author Jess Walter. Walter’s latest book, the 2014 NCW Regional Read, is a New York Times bestseller, one that NPR’s Fresh Air named “A literary miracle,” and the New York Times Book Review called “A high-wire feat of bravura storytelling.” Walter will address conference registrants and interested community members on Friday evening, May 16 at the Community Center in Wenatchee. This kick-off event is sponsored by Starr Ranch Growers.
The conference workshops begin on Saturday, May 17 at Wenatchee Valley College. Workshops will provide two days of content-packed sessions with professional editors, agents, bestselling authors and nationally-acclaimed speakers. This annual event is one of the best ways for published and aspiring writers to hone their craft and move their writing forward.
The conference provides a unique opportunity to learn from the best in a casual, intimate atmosphere.  There will be opportunities to meet with publishing professionals, get one-on-one writing advice from published authors, and network with fellow writers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to pitch their projects to a literary agent and a book publisher.
