SQUAW VALLEY COMMUNITY OF WRITERS
SUMMER WRITING CONFERENCE, AUGUST 6 TO AUGUST 13.
The best of the West and my home away from home, the Squaw Valley writers conference, August 6 to August 13. Summer camp for writers–in the Sierra. Amazing teachers, amazing participants. Writers, editors, agents… at 8,000 feet. Met my editor there. I suggest you start planning your excuses now, rounding up Grandma for the kids. www.squawvalleywriters.org.
