Does your writing need a boost?
The best way to invest in your writing career is to take it seriously. Invest in yourself as a writer by attending a writers’ conference. Nourish your identity, no matter what level of writer you are. Spend time surrounded by other writers. Learn from them. A writers’ conference is where you should be!
Here are 5 reasons to attend the upcoming DWW Conference on September 16, 2017:

Angelica Schirrick had always suspected there was something deeply disturbing about her family, but the truth was more than she bargained for.
“With tenderness, but without blinking, Linda K. Sienkiewicz turns her eye on the predator-prey savannah of the young and still somehow hopeful.” ~ Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of the #1 NY Times Bestseller, Deep End of the Ocean
