Dan McGuire Blog Challenge

Join our annual Dan McGuire Blog Challenge. 
From February to April tap into your inner author and showcase your craft. This challenge not only holds writers to a schedule but beefs up the ever elusive online platform. The bad days, the goofy moments and even the mundane task of writing the next Great American Novel, we want to read it.

Three Simple Rules:

1. Click here to sign up.

2. From 2/4/2019 to 4/29/2019 write and post a minimum of 26 entries

Twenty-six entries over thirteen weeks is roughly two entries a week.
From poetry to stories, let your creative juices flow. There is a catch, there must be words and they must be your words. 

3. Visit fellow blog challengers. 

You can "like" the link, comment on the post or send me an email with what/who you've read.
At least three a week (and yes, we check).

Almost time!

Our Writers Of Kern Spring Conference is just around the corner and we are bursting with excitement. As a board we spent hours sifting through suggestions and surveys—you spoke and we listened. 
Our members want to hone their craft and get help with publishing. 
We've done it. Our Spring Conference delivers the best of both worlds.

We’ve secured Amy Friedman, a woman set on changing the world with the written word and Adam Berg, who not only writes killer comedy but cofounded a studio with his fellow coworkers. We have top-notch teachers to lead our workshops but we didn’t stop there.

We’re continuing our Good Pitch, Bad Pitch Contest. Whether it’s a perfect pitch or a full out fail, we’ll laugh and learn together. Each table will have its own team in our Battle of the Tables. And of course, we’ll have giveaways galore.

Between our platinum level presenters and publication games, you’re guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience. 
Don’t miss out on our early bird tickets of $30 for students, $60 for adults and $300 for a table of six. Hurry! Tickets are selling fast. After the first 75 price jumps to $85.
