Oxford Creative Nonfiction Writers Conference and Workshop May 2-5

Julie Powers Schoerke, my wonderful book publicist (and friend!) is going to be speaking May 2 – May 5 at the Oxford Creative Nonfiction Writers Conference and Workshop in Oxford, Mississippi. If you get a chance, I recommend you go see her! Julie is intelligent, savvy, great at book promotion and books, and kind.

And Neil White, the founder of this project, is a celebrated author (In the Sanctuary of Outcasts) and publisher. According to Julie, she was astounded “by the frank information that he provided to those in attendance. No holds barred. He told the attendees everything any author has ever wondered and shared his pitch letter, responses he got, spreadsheets he created for his own book and the financial breakdown of how it all went for him. He’s a book publisher now, so has some interesting perspective to share when he wears that hat as well.”

He’s bringing in some terrific publishing experts and agents to speak. It sounds like it will be an extraordinary four-day event for anyone who really wants to hone their skills and do some heavy duty networking.

Please help spread the word if you can think of writers who might be interested in going to one of the most beautiful places in the country this spring!
