Write Angles (Belated)

Offering another post written months ago but not published!

Here's a first. I was recently asked to be one of the keynote speakers at the upcoming Write Angles Conference.

What is Write Angles? Here's what they say:

Now in its 29th year, WriteAngles is Western New England’s premier conference by writers, for writers. At this one-day gathering, you’ll mix with experienced writers and agents in panel discussions, hands-on workshops, face-to-face meetings, and in casual networking opportunities. The affordably priced conference fee includes a continental breakfast and a bountiful buffet lunch. The conference is held in Mount Holyoke College’s gracious Willits-Hallowell Center in South Hadley, Massachusetts.

Past Keynoters have included Valerie Martin, Richard Russo, Julia Glass, Dennis Lehane, Patricia Smith, Andre Dubus, and Ann Hood - just to name a few. Now me? Yikes.

I was actually a panelist at this a few years back. Fun event. But this is the first time anybody has called me a "keynote" anything. Apparently I'm up at the podium for 45 minutes. Good thing I have until October to come up with something to say!

Wait. October isn't that far away...

Congratulations, David! I live close enough (eastern MA) that I might actually be able to make it.

p.s. Happy to see you're blogging again!

Cool. It's a nice little conference, compact but with great content. It would be great to see you there!
