As part of the month of December, we are going to profile 12 local art or writing organizations.

Today we’re making sure you know of our partners, SDSU Writers’ Conference, January 20-22.  We’ll have a table in the lobby of the event so do sign up for the conference and also stop by and see us while you are there!

This conference is a great one for writers still new to the process.  They have so many workshops on all aspects of writing.  It also has great networking and the very valuable agent/editor consultations plus meals and other meet/greet times.

This year has a great lineup of speakers:
