WordSpring 9th Annual Writers Conference
Creative writers, hone your craft and enjoy a day of workshops and fellowship at the 9th annual WordSpring creative writing conference at Butte College on Saturday, April 25!

Work with published authors from your choice of 16 workshops and leave the conference with work-in-progress and renewed inspiration.

Keynote speaker Gayle Brandeis will lead two workshops on writing courageously and developing strong characters. Sallie Ehrman, Heather Altfeld, Troy Jollimore, and Anina Berman will lead poetry workshops.

Pat Hull will guide a session in songwriting.

Kyleen Bromley, Lia Deromedi, Finn Kraemer, and Ty Moore offer fiction writing workshops ranging from beginning level to advanced.

Tara Grover Smith, an award-winning screenwriter, hosts screenwriting.

Finally, Annie Crawford does blog writing and how to pitch an article, and The Magic Pen Society, Butte Colleges Novel Writing Club, discusses bringing diversity to your characters.

Be sure to see the presenter bios at www.buttewordspring.org and choose your workshops when you arrive.

Join us for a reading and reception, free and open to the public, the evening before the conference on Friday, April 24th. Email wordspring@butte.edu for information and directions.

Take part in an on-the-spot writing contest the day of the conference. Purchase authors' books, t-shirts, and mugs while attending, and enjoy breakfast and lunch included in the cost (reduced this year in response to the Camp Fire. Those who lost their homes can attend the event free but must register in advance).

We have a limited number of registrations available in person on the day of the conference for an additional $5 each.
