Genre and Geography Lunch With Keynote Speaker Jennifer Lauck

Friday, August 4, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Mt. Hood
Sit down to talk shop, compare notes, refill, and refuel. We’ve schedule two hours for this break, so there’s time to grab a quick nap after if you’re inclined. Presentations for this meal:
  • Kay Snow Middle Grade & Youth Award Presentation
  • Kay Snow Best College Submission Award Presentation
  • Bestselling author and writing teacher Jennifer Lauck onĀ What I Wish I Had Been Told as a Writer
  • The first raffle drawings of the conference


You will see place cards at the tables, with names of genres (like Fantasy/SF) or of locations (like Corvallis or SE Portland). This gives you a chance to eat with people who share a common writing interest, or to connect with potential writing buddies from your neighborhood. We’ll also have some uncarded tables for people who want to just try their luck.
