Some secrets can't be kept forever.
The world of publishing has secrets…
The fictional Clymer Workshop is one of the oldest writers' conferences in the country. Every summer aspiring writers pay thousands to mingle with famous authors in rural Western New York.
The writers have tried and failed to get book contracts on their own. They're desperate to meet one of the visiting agents or editors who would be interested in their work. But why do the agents and editors promised in the brochure disappear after giving their lectures?
They look upon the writers teaching them in creative writing workshops with awe and envy, unaware of the pressures on their idols—the favors made, the courtesies given, the grudges held. Even an author's wife becomes fair game.
The author of The Writers' Conference was told by her agent that she couldn't write about the things that are said in this novel. No one should ever tell an American they can't say something in print if it's responsible. And you can buy it now!
The Writers' Conference is a fun read for everyone, and a useful education for anyone who might be thinking of a writing career. The story moves along quickly and holds the reader's interest all the way to the exciting (and surprising) ending. Peter C. Foster, author.
