WRITE HERE / WRITE NOW

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.

APRIL 14 2018 : SALEM, OREGON

Learn how to overcome common barriers many writers face!

We believe that writing (not just talking about writing, hearing about writing) is the key to a successful writer’s life, which is what this event is all about.

Inspired by an event sponsored by the Seattle7Writers group, Write Here Write Now in Salem is a collaborative one-day conference that is focused on writers who have been brave enough to start writing, but have had problems finishing their work.

It is a fun, fast-paced day of mini-lessons, one-on-one author conferences, and lots and lots of writing.

Join us for support, tips, prompts, and advice from friendly writers, to make this day a one-of-a-kind writing experience you will never forget.

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
