Registration Open: Washington Writers Conference

Registration is now open for the 6th annual Washington Writers Conference, May 4-5 at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in College Park, MD. Sponsored by the Washington Independent Review of Books, Books Alive! welcomes some of the region’s best writers for panels, interviews, meet-and-greets, and more. This year’s headliners include novelist Alice McDermott and veteran TV newsman Bob Schieffer.

I’ll be part of a panel kicking off the Saturday, May 5, program at 9 a.m.: “Writing a Page-Turner” with authors E.A. Aymar and Delancey Stewart, moderated by Salley Shannon. And there are plenty of other friends on genre-fiction panels throughout the day, including Donna Andrews, Sherry Harris and Colleen Shogan on a “Women of Crime” panel and Nik Korpon on a science fiction panel.
