Helping Authors Achieve Their Dreams

Spring 2014 Writing Conference

Picture yourself here. Working on your manuscript

Is this the year you vowed to finish your manuscript? Do you have a manuscript that consists of parts, pieces, paragraphs and ponderings?

Are you hungry for a place to write . . . yearning for just a few hours of inspiration and direction?

Then our workshop is for you!

Join Atlanta’s award-winning authors Ann Hite and Renea Winchester as they present a spring writing workshop. Under their encouragement, participants will learn how to create memorable characters and use nature to create a sense of place. Bring your manuscript, creative ideas, and a hunger to learn. This is a working conference. Our goal is to encourage, enlighten, and energize all participants.
