CONFERENCES & CONTESTS - NorthWest Arkansas Writers Workshop
The first annual conference of this fledgling group takes place Saturday March 19, 2016 in Fayetteville AR.
However, do NOT let the fact this is their first year deter you from attending what promises to be a fabulous conference.
If you check out their WEBSITE you will find a star-studded list of authors coming together for an educational and entertaining weekend.
Dusty Richards (founder)
Velda Brotherton (co-founder)
Mark Landon Smith
John T. Biggs
Dusty Richards is the author of over 100 Western novels, inducted into the Arkansas Writers Hall of Fame, and is President of Western Writers of America. He has also served in various positions on the board of the Ozark Creative Writers conference (celebrating its golden anniversary this year) for many years.
Velda Brotherton has enjoyed a long career as both a romance, historical fiction and non-fiction author. She has published over 25 books since 1994 and shows no signs of slowing down.
The list of talented people involved with this organization is a testament to the quality you will find. I hope to be there on March 19th and look forward to seeing many of you there as well.
