The Midwest Writers Workshop helped launch my writing career. I went to the conference in the summer of 2007 and by the end of the year the agent I met there had sold my first book (WHERE AM I WEARING?) to a publisher.
You should REGISTER NOW for the conference this summer if you’d like to reach the world with your words. We’re well on our way to another sell-out.
I’ve been a proud member of the nonprofit’s planning committee for the last 6 years or so. We’re growing the number of opportunities we offer writers along with the number of faculty we bring in, including agents, editors, authors, and publishing experts. We outgrew our old location at Ball State’s Alumni Center and this summer will host the conference at Ball State’s Student Center.
To show attendees how awesome this new location is, I joined my fellow committee member Gail Werner on a tour of the Student Center.
Gail and I planned this video for a whole 5 minutes and then started shooting. We never had to shoot more than one take. It’s not that the video is THAT good, so much as it was that informal. Secretly we’re both hoping that Veejay scouts see this video and immediately hire us.
Are there still Veejays?
Anyhow, register for the conference and come hang out in Muncie this summer.
