knittingpearlsOn Wed. Nov. 18th at 7 p.m. the Broadside Bookshop in Northampton will be celebrating the release of Knitting Pearls, an anthology by bestselling novelist, memoirist, and WriteAngles 2012 keynoter Ann Hood.

WriteAngles 2015 panelist Cathi Hanauer will be reading from the piece she contributed to the anthology. Please come! Bring your knitting, obviously.

congratulations2All of us who organized this year’s WriteAngles conference on Saturday are enjoying a post-conference glow right now. Many thanks to our keynoters, Carol Edelstein and Susan Stinson, all our panelists and moderators, everyone behind the scenes — and all of you who attended the conference.

We are scrutinizing your evaluation forms and will meet soon to debrief. We expect to begin planning for next year sometime in January. If you would like to join the planning team, please let us know.

We wish you all a happy and productive year of writing and publishing.

Walk-ins welcome

We will be admitting walk-in registrants to the WriteAngles conference this year. There will be an additional charge of $10 — that is $110 for general admission, and $90 for full-time students and those aged 65 and over.

Please note that we cannot accept credit card payment or cash. CHECKS ONLY.

All of the appointment slots for personal meetings with agents at the 2015 WriteAngles conference are now filled. Any new query letters or requests for appointments will be wait-listed in case someone drops out.

We are still accepting registrations for the conference.

We are still taking registrations and, amazingly, there are still a few slots open for agent meetings.
New registrants can no longer submit material for “The Hook” agents panel or the Legal Clinic, but there are still a few days for those with a finished book or non-fiction book proposal outline to request a meeting with one of our three agents.
We have also extended the window for participation in the Read & Weed workshop by a few days. Acceptance in either of these is on a first come, first serve basis. When we reach the maximums for these activities, the opportunity will end–at least for this year.
Registration for the main conference will remain open until we reach the limit allowed by the conference facility.
