The 2009 WRWA Fall Conference in Eau Claire, Wisconsin will offer attendees opportunities to meet and greet speakers that many of us have only dreamt of!

Well known radio talk show host, Jean Feraca, will grace our presence on Saturday afternoon when she reveals her experiences and talks about turning poetry into memoirs.

Noted New York City literary agent, Barbara Poelle, will share her insights on the publishing industry from the big market perspective, and what it takes for new writers to break into the big time.

John Lehman, well known poet and Wisconsin Poet Laureate runner-up, will talk about getting published in the poetry world.

Eva Apelqvist, explains how children's writers can succeed in a failing economy.

Greg Peck, local Wisconsin published author, shares
his experiences being published and why he pursued a small mainstream publisher.

Cassie Hansen, local college student, freelancer, and Youth Member’s Service Coordinator will discuss how young writers can get involved and become successful in the writing industry.

The conference has something to offer everyone with Writers’ Breakout Sessions Saturday evening, and opportunities to read material aloud without critique on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The conference will climax with the annual Jade Ring Banquet where Contest winners will receive awards and read their winning entries aloud to the audience. So, this year’s WRWA Fall Writers’ Conference promises to be an event not to miss. Plan to join the fun September 25-27, and meet the professionals, and enjoy the company of all your writer friends.
