Write on the Sound Looking for Presenters!

October 5-7, 2012
Presented by the Edmonds Arts Commission

In its 27th year, Write on the Sound (WOTS) is an intimate (200 max), high quality, affordable writers’ conference that focuses on the craft of writing. A variety of classes are offered for all levels and interests. Special features include pre-conference half-day critique workshops, a keynote speaker, one-on-one manuscript critique appointments, a themed writing contest, book sales featuring books by conference presenters, a meet-and-greet reception and book signing event, and more.

A choice of workshops is offered in four time segments on Saturday & Sunday. WOTS provides a mix of sessions on how-to, motivational topics, various genre, and specialty subjects. Presenters are paid an honorarium (2011: $134 for 75 minute, $161 for 90 minute workshops). Lodging and transportation are only paid for the Keynote speaker, but a stipend is available to those traveling more than 100 miles. WOTS is held at the Frances Anderson Center (Edmonds’ Parks & Recreation facility), 700 Main Street, Edmonds WA, with outstanding views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.

I presented at WOTS last year and had a blast. It's small, and the participants were so grateful. Also, the conference puts on a great event to meet everyone with the best spread of appetizers...
