I've attended this conference for the previous two years, and was impressed by the speakers, the friendliness of the conference volunteers, and how efficiently the event was organized.
The annual conference is held on the campus of Southeast Missouri in Cape Girardeau, MO. This year it will be Saturday, July 15.
Unfortunately, I am unable to attend this year due to health reasons.
This year's faculty is top-notch. The keynote speaker is Brian A. Klems, who will give a talk about "The 20 Things You Need to Know Before You Seek An Agent or Publisher." Klems is the online editor of Writer's Digest.
Superb editor Donna J. Essner, Acquisitions Editor and Partner at Amphorae Publishing Group, will take pitches and serve on the Slush Pile Panel.
Other presenters include literary agents Alice Speilburg and Justin Wells, who will be taking pitches. Speilburg will also give a presentation on "How to Keep Agents and Editors Reading."
Author and college instructor Karen Sargent will give a presentation on Marketing Strategies.
