The Writer’s Conference is On!

The Wordcrafters In Eugene writers conference will happen March 7-9, 2014.

A lot of people are putting massive amounts of organizational energy into it. Now the website is up and we’re beginning to recruit presenters and keynote speakers.

The week before the conference, Susan Wiggs and I will hold 4-day retreats, each limited to ten attendees.

There will be hands-on, one-on-one help with your writing, a lot of fun events, amazing speakers and teachers, and as it’s the 50th anniversary of the publication of Sometimes A Great Notion, we’ll be celebrating our local literary heritage.

If you want to be a presenter, or know of someone who would fill out our roster nicely, let us know. If you want to volunteer to help, let us know. But mostly, just plan to come to Eugene at the most beautiful time of the year (not really) and join in with a bunch of other introverts to have a good time celebrating literature.

  1. Ms. Engrstrom, Dorothy Bell here. It’s been a while, but I’ve taken your writing classes through Lane Community College. I’m proud to announce that in April my first Oregon historical romance “The Reprobate” released through Freya’s Bower Publishing. I will begin the editing on my second contracted Oregon historical romance “The Cost of Revenge” very soon and I recently signed a contract with Freya’s Bower for a third Oregon historical romance titled “Dance Hall Road.” I hope you check out my blog at, look around. Thank you for your encouragement, which has kept be plugging away, sending in submissions, rewriting and rewriting, refining and gleaning.
