Richmond Hearts Writers
This year at the James River Writers Conference we are trying something new. We are sharing our conference experience with the #RVA.
Why? Because James River Writers loves Richmond and Richmond loves Writers. No gimmicks, no tricks, just us showing the RVA how much we love them.
On Saturday, October 18th we will be sharing many of our award-winning conference speakers with the community. Who might these awesome people be?
- Multicultural Books: The Importance of Diversity in Children’s Literature – Kwame Alexander, T. R. Simon, and Stacy Whitman
- Taking Liberties: The Pleasures and Pitfalls of Historical Fiction – Bruce Holsinger, Sarah MacLean, and Kelly O’Connor Macnees
- Rapid Fire: Self-Publishing and the Changing Climate for Writers and Readers – Hugh Howey
- Not Just Muppets: Jim Henson’s Cultural Influence – Brian Jay Jones
There’s something for everyone. The locations will be through downtown Richmond, VA, allowing conference goers a chance to see this fair city I call home. Also, we hope to gather members of our community to enjoy these speakers.
All of these panels will be interesting to those who love to read and those who love to write. I’m a true believer that readers should know something about the writing experience and writers should understand what readers want from the books they read.
We’d love to see you at the James River Writers Conference (check out our conference programming). If your schedule doesn’t have that give, come to these Saturday afternoon offerings for a chance to see what we are about.
