We all have a wanna-be-a-writer inside of us. I’ve even started a book or two. I think if I just stuck with it, it might not even be half bad! But one thing that always gets me in the mood is inspiration from authors I enjoy reading. Coming back to Eureka Springs is the 43rd Annual Ozark Creative Writers Conference, October 6-8, 2011. Featured speaker is David Morrell, who has been a long-time favorite of mine, because I love action thrillers. He should have some awesome tips to share. Also featured is a writer’s agent, Gordon Warnock.
The conference has several other speakers and subjects including such items as “Ten Stupid Things in Writing You Never Thought About. And the Secret to Never Forgetting Them” and “Dialogue, Speaking Frankly. The Secrets to Making Your Characters Talk Naturally and Not Sound Forced or Staged, While at the Same time Moving Your Story. Tips for Talking and Pitfalls to Avoid”. Cost for the conference is $119.00 per person. There are a few contests and awards. Check out their site for more details.
And you can come to Eureka Springs throughout the seasons for true inspiration!
