This month Portland author Bill Johnson, (A Story Is A Promise) joined me in the studio to talk about writer's conferences. Bill is a regular around the West Coast at conferences, and teaches a workshop as a companion to his book. The office manager at Willamette Writers, he knows all the presenter, and spends a year organizing it, with the other 80 or so volunteers. Bill also talked a bit about writer's groups, differentiating critique groups from support groups. According to Bill Johnson, sometimes we need support, sometimes critique. Finding the right group for you is essential. Bill talked about the upcoming Willamette Writer's Conference in Portland, and the line-up of presenters. The website for the conference can be found at www.willamettewriters.com. The Kay Snow Writing Contest always holds its awards ceremony at the conference. The deadline each year for the contest in any genre is May 15. Thanks to Bill Johnson.
