Overview

This comprehensive directory of writers' conferences and workshops gives authors of all types easy access to those being held in the United States and Canada starting in 1996. Included are entries from more than 40 states and provinces; each entry offers practical information about where, when, and how the workshops and conferences are given. Conferences are listed for all writers, from screenwriters to children's writers, and the text includes important details about marketing, agents and editors, and also about contests and scholarships. Of added interest are the author's interviews with six directors of writers' conferences, who tell how and why they came to be involved, and what special characteristics their conferences offer; and a short history of the modern writers' conference, beginning with the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference in 1926, which shows how the idea has grown and changed and exploded during the past 70 years.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A far from "complete" guide (the numerous non-respondents are noted; others, such as the wonderful Coos Bay Writers Workshop, are apparently beyond the ken of the compiler) that provides practical information about some 140 workshops and conferences throughout the US and Canada. More interesting are the interviews with six directors of writers' conferences. The many mispellings of noted faculty do not give cause for confidence. Hopefully the next edition will be far improved. The publisher's address is I-54 Dunmore, P.O. Box 62, Forest Dale, VT 05745. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
