The 2013 Whidbey Writers Conference brims with literary excitement this week-end as Whidbey writers, regional Puget Sound writers, and writers from beyond the island, converged on island for the 2013 Whidbey Island Writers Conference.
Whidbey is a writers’ paradise 99% of the time. And why not, it’s a place long held in story; Native American, settler, modern day residents, students and teachers.
Board members, hosts and volunteers with WhidbeyAIR had an informational table at the Conference book- signing meet and greet this afternoon, connecting with familiar Whidbey writers, and many new ones. One lucky writer even won a in studio recording session with us! Stayed tuned.
Thanks to the Whidbey Island Writers Conference
Adding to that thanks, let’s just thank all the writers’ organizations and events that keep the Whidbey and the Puget Sound a hot bed hub for writers.. The Northwest Institute of Literary Arts, Hedgebrook, and the even the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference, and the many other workshops, writers groups and tutors that make writing and Whidbey synonymous. Great work!
We’ll have more to come, from the 2013 Whidbey Island Writers Conference in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
