I love living in Fairfield County. I can't imagine a place more welcoming to writers - the libraries all have excellent writers' programs and conferences, and almost all of them are free to attend. This is a place where you can interact with all levels of writers, from those just starting out to those topping bestselling lists.
The Fairfield Public Library is continuing this great tradition of supporting writers by hosting a one-day writers' conference this upcoming Saturday, November 3rd. It's in celebration of NaNoWriMo, but there will be something for everyone - from nonfiction writers to short story writers, from poets to novelists. My good friend Edward Ahern and I will be participating in a poetry panel, but I'll be at the conference all day, so please feel free to stop by and say hi if you see me.
The conference is completely FREE to attend, but space is limited - you can sign up for it HERE. It will be held in the Rotary Room.
The poetry panel Ed and I will be a part of will be held from 1-2pm, called: "Poetry: Writing, Readings and Getting Published." Panelists will include Laurel S. Peterson, Jack Powers, William McCarthy, David Boston, Paul Bluestein, and Alice Green.
Below is the full program for the day - you are welcome to attend all of it or part of it, but don't forget to sign up or you might miss out!
Who the heck is Alison McBain?
I am a freelance writer and poet with nearly a hundred short pieces published in magazines and anthologies.
