Monte Sano Writer's Conference


Saturday, April 5, 2014


This day-long conference will include workshops, panels, and Q&A that will give writers tools to become a better writer and help thems get published! Participants will meet and learn from this year’s special guests – bestselling author Milam McGraw Propst (among her many wonderful books is A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Streetwhich was adapted into the award-winning family film "The Adventures of Ociee Nash") and Ami McConnell, Senior Editor at Harper Collins. Our MC is author Homer Hickam, probably best known for his memoir Rocket Boys which was made into the film “October Sky.“ Milam, Ami, and Homer will be available to you all day to answer your questions and offer advice on how to be published and how to make your writing the best it can be. Workshops led by our other published guest authors allow attendees to pick from topics of special interest: Fiction, Science Fiction and Fantasy, Historical Writing, Children’s Books, Self-­publishing and Kindle Singles, Christian Books, and Romance writing. Our authors and editors will present these, with handouts, and give advice on finding an agent, working with publishers, and marketing strategy for this changing book world. There will also be a delicious, hot lunch provided with time to network with your fellow writers and guest authors!
