First Things First

If you've managed to find this blog, then you probably already know about the 2011 Missouri Writers' Guild "Just Write!" Conference in St. Louis on April 8-10. Although it's still eight months away, we've managed to put quite a few details together, including a lineup that I'm really proud to present.

One of the blog's main purposes is to give everyone an opportunity to get to know our speakers and our MWG members a little better before the conference, as well as to let you ask questions that we hope to answer. And, if you happen to have an upcoming literary event, please feel free to let us know so we can let everyone else know. We're all about networking!

Hopefully, we'll be able to give you a glimpse of the people who you'll be meeting when you attend the conference in April at the Westport Plaza Sheraton Hotel. The link for the Sheraton is posted on so you can register for your room while you're online completing your Paypal registration for the conference. The Sheraton is giving a special $89 rate for the MWG conference.

Early-Bird Registration is opening August 15th, and if my email inbox is any indication, it's going to fill up pretty fast!

Thanks for stopping by and we hope you'll be back soon!

  3. Hi Debbie and MWG members,

    It has been a whirlwind of a week with stops in Union, Springfield and St. Charles, and I can honestly say I had a ball! True, writing is only the beginning--the promotion is almost equal in intensity and significance. But, to me, that is the most satisfying part. When a reader says to me, "I couldn't put your book down," those words are music to my ears. Almost as good as the sight of the familiar face that walks through the bookstore door to visit your signing!
    Thanks Debbie!!
