Looking for a catalyst to start writing that memoir? Need an agent to represent the novel you’ve kept in a drawer for years? You may want to attend the San Miguel International Writers’ Conference & Literary Festival, February 11-15, 2015, in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Hey, it’s an excuse for a warm-weather vacation, and you might even get a tax break on the tuition!
Keynote speakers this year include Gloria Steinem, Alice Walker, Scott Turow, Tracy Chevalier, and other luminaries of the literary world.
“Early Bard” pricing is $490-$745 USD depending on the package of conference events and extracurricular activities you desire. Transportation and accommodations extra. (Check out my listing on Airbnb and opt to stay in a real Mexican neighborhood if hotels aren’t your thing.)
Register now if you’re inclined to give your writing a boost—the conference tends to fill early and I predict it will be sold out again this year.
WIN A FULL CONFERENCE PACKAGE PLUS HOUSING AND AGENT SESSION! Click here to learn about the writing contest (deadline Nov. 15, 2014) and be one of three writers who get a free ride.
