2009 Writers' Institute

The 20th annual Writers' Institute will be held March 27-29, 2009, in Madison.

Although there are workshops on a variety of topics, the main focus this year is on agents - why you need one, how to get one, what kind of authors they are currently representing, etc. Lots of agents will be present so this will be a great opportunity to network.

The keynote event will be Friday, titled "Finding Your Fortune: Things I’ve Learned," with Marshall J. Cook. Cook has been published in several fields, including novels, nonfiction books, articles, and short stories. He contends, “So can you.” Discover what he knows to be true for a writer’s success. Limited space for this event; deadline for buying a ticket is Monday, March 24.

Fees vary, from $25 to $245 for the whole weekend.
