If you are at all interested in attending the biggest and best writing conference in Canada, hie on over to www.siwc.ca and register yourself for the fifteenth annual Surrey International Writers’ Conference. Amazing line-up of presenters this year, agents, editors and publishers from both the large Canadian and American markets (yes — lots of New Yorkers in the line-up!), with an especial emphasis on Mystery and Writing for Children this year. But other genres are not neglected either — at the very least, it’s worth a peek at the website. Registration opened yesterday and today is ONE WEEK to the deadline of the associated Writing Contests. With more than $4000 in prizes, this is the richest conference-associated contest in the country. And as of last year, there is a Writing For Children category. 1500 word limit, no picture books — but a chance to get that short story out there.
If you have any questions, fire off an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . And whatever you can do to spread the word — especially of the looming contest deadline — is dearly appreciated.
Hope to see you there!
