The Special Magic of the Writer's Hotel
by Julie Carpenter
Here at Sacred Chickens, one of our main goals is encouraging emerging writers, helping you find a first home for your words, providing inspirations with book reviews and original writing and trying to point you toward things that might help you grow as a writer.
As such, we are more than happy to recommend The Writer’s Hotel. This year’s conference will be held online so there’s nothing holding you back from attending! If you want to see your writing grow by leaps and bounds…please click through this link and check out the benefits. The deadline is coming up fast on August 22, 2020.
The Writer’s Hotel All Fiction Conference offers study in multiple genres: literary, historical, young adult, middle grade, science fiction, fantasy, high fantasy, fantastic, speculative, noir, crime, suspense, mystery, experimental and autobiographical fiction. If you write fiction, this conference is for you! There are genre labs, lectures, events, and one-on-one virtual pitch sessions with agents.
Julie has traveled to this conference several times and she always comes back inspired with a much better manuscript than she submitted. It would be safe to say that Things Get Weird in Whistlestop became a real book at TWH in much the same way that Pinocchio became a real boy when he learned to quit lying. (I’ll work out the implications of that metaphor in a later blog post.)
Please explore this opportunity. Time is running out!
Here’s a longer and better piece previously published here and written by the amazing Lyndsie Clark about the Magic of The Writer’s Hotel to help you better understand the intense, encouraging atmosphere that feeds the writer’s soul.
Hope to see you there!
