The Write on the River 2011 Writers Conference was another stimulating success! Engaging workshops, a fantastic keynote, and plenty of camaraderie and connections between writers from across our region. Thank you so much to all our presenters, our dedicated volunteers, and all our enthusiastic attendees. We can’t wait for Write on the River 2012!

Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for news of Write on the River’s year-round opportunities, including a summer “Writers Meeting Writers” event, a Members Only event in the fall, and some exciting new programs and initiatives.

Here’s some of the praise for this year’s Conference from attendees and presenters:

“A wonderful experience – so informative – great opportunities to explore the profession of writing – I will ““be back.’”

“I will recommend this conference to everyone I know. Those of you who were there are so lucky to have attended. I’m endlessly impressed with this event.” Chelsea Cain, NYTimes best-selling author and 2011 keynoter

“I’ve attended every WOTR conference. I started as a beginner with high interest and have written steadily for those years. Every year I look forward to the camaraderie, support, ‘odd’ characters and the beginnings of new friendships. Every year I learn significant skills, knowledge, strategy that make my writing better and effective for my goals. I can’t believe how well you do this year after year…Congratulations on these successes – Thank you. I’m proud to be a writer and a member.”

“A well-organized and splendid event.” – Jennifer McCord, 2011 presenter

“I have to honestly say that I didn’t know what to expect from this conference. My friend and I had an excellent time! The classes were well prepared and delivered professionally. Thank you very much!”

“This is a great conference. I learned a lot and look forward to next year!”
