The two-and-a-half-day conference, which has sold out for the past three years, is focused on the craft of writing and will be Oct. 5-7, 2012. The conference offers over 30 workshops — taught by authors, instructors and trade professionals — that are a mix of how-to/hands-on, genre based and motivation. Also included in the weekend is a keynote speaker, a writing contest, manuscript critiques and an on-site bookstore.
Interested individuals are invited to send a professional resume that includes information about teaching or presentation experience; works published, if appropriate; and a description of one or more 75- or 90-minute classes for consideration. Proposals will be reviewed February through mid-April with final selections made in May.
Send proposals to WOTS Presenters by mail to 700 Main St., Edmonds WA 98020; by fax to 425-771-0253 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. To view a copy of the 2011 registration brochure and the “Call for Presenters,” visit the conference website at www.writeonthesound.com.
