Come together … in San Diego

December 12, 2007

Writers, come together … in beautiful San Diego. February brings the 22nd Southern California Writers’ Conference at San Diego, and the Presidents’ Day weekend conference is shaping up quite nicely.

The latest updates, of course, can be found at WritersConference.com (and, hopefully, here as well). Check the online brochure (.pdf) for details, including conference workshop and session leaders, agents and editors who intend to be available, featured speakers, and, of course, registration and advance submission details.

And while we don’t want to play favorites among our workshop and session leaders—it really is an impressive list—it would be equally unfair to leave out the latest developments:

  • From powerhouse independent sci-fi, fantasy and horror publisher Night Shade Books, editor-in-chief Jeremy Lassen is aboard for San Diego 22. While not listed in the hardcopy brochure, Jeremy will be on one of the agents & editors panels and accepting advance submissions for follow up one-on-one consultation. Given the genres he specializes in, and with NSB set to launch a general imprint next year, he will likely prove popular.
  • Also not listed in the brochure, following his packed workshops at our L.A. and Palm Springs events, back by popular demand is Shooting Shrink series author and semi-retired psychologist Michael Thompkins. This time around Michael will be conducting two new interactive sessions, “Creating Congruent Characters Part I & Part II,” as well as accepting advance submissions in fiction.

More news to come, but for now keep in mind two very important dates. December 31, 2007 is the last day to register and qualify for the early-bard discount. January 12, 2008 is the deadline for advance submissions. See the brochure for details.
