The Cape Cod Writers Conference is “one of the oldest broad-based writer’s conferences in the country” (source), and it is returning to Hyannis for the 54th year this August. Last year, I was unable to participate in the conference, but the President and Editor-in-Chief of my publishing house attended as one of the presenters. Later in the week, I was able to meet with her and other local (or at least within driving distance) authors who write for The Wild Rose Press, and we had a wonderful lunch together on the Cape.
This year, three of us will be speaking as an author panel during the lunchtime discussions on the first day of the conference—Friday, August 5th—from 11:45 to 1:00 p.m. Below is the summary of our session…I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to share my experience with other writers, and I hope if you’re attending the conference, you’ll come join us for an informative chat during the lunch hour!
The Writer’s Journey: Come hear three traditionally published Cape Cod authors discuss their long, interesting, and often circuitous paths to publication and beyond. Former CCWC President Kevin Symmons, Kathryn Knight, and Katie O'Sullivan, authors of 14 successful novels in various genres, offer insights, tell stories, and answer your questions.
