Tick … tick … tick … (no pressure)

January 9, 2008

Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines! Do you work better under pressure? Registered conferees face an upcoming deadline: Saturday, January 12, 2008. This is the date by which your advance critique submissions should be received for review:

Submissions must be in proper format and be received by no later than January 12, 2008. Advance Manuscript Critique is available only to registered conferees and will be returned at the conference. Appointments times for one-on-one sessions will be posted at the Registration Desk.

Address your manuscript to the appropriate Reader in care of the conference (SCWC), 1010 University Ave., #54, San Diego, CA 92103. You may register first then submit your material later, as long as material is received before deadline.

Or see the SCWC website for more information, including notes on manuscript format and reader selection. Time keeps on tickin’ ….

(Are you not a registered conferee? There’s only one solution to that: sign up for the 22nd Annual Southern California Writers’ Conference at San Diego!)

‘Tis the Season

December 24, 2007

‘Tis the season, indeed.

At this time of year, it is worth reminding that, as we do every day, we wish you all only the best in your endeavors. Everyone carries with them some degree of art, and may that shining star within bring you and your community all of your brightest hopes. Peace, joy, solace in trying times; let your creativity nourish and heal those around you.

During this season’s celebration of goodwill, we should also remember the many gifts we hope to give through artistic labor. The stories we tell are as much a part of us as our hopes and happiness, our compassion and love, our very names. They are, truly, among the very least we can give unto our neighbors.

Be safe. Be well.

And … uh … remember, there’s only a week left to register for the 22nd annual San Diego conference and qualify for the early-bard discount. The deadline for the $50 discount toward full-conference registration is December 31, 2007.

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.
