Aside from informative workshops, Contests (with prize money!) and great entertainment in this beautiful Ozarks community, you'll find great accommodations at Best Western Inn of the Ozarks. But book your room now as they fill up fast!
I've been attending this conference for twenty-plus years and have ALWAYS come away with valuable information, amazing network opportunities and a new lease on my writing. I hope you'll join us
