SCWW Conference Labor Day Special Offer

By Ginny Padgett
2012 SCWW Conference – October 19-21 – Myrtle Beach
It’s that time of year again. School is back in session, football returns to fan-filled stadia and South Carolina Writers’ Workshop holds its annual conference.
Here’s the latest conference news. The early-bird registration rate ended yesterday (September 1), but if you register by September 15 and email me at and tell me you saw this blog, I will extend the $50.00 discount. Additionally, I’ll extend the deadline for purchasing a manuscript critique to September 15.
Registration remains open until October 17; however, you’ll pay full price and only pitch and query-letter critique appointments remain for sale.
 I hope you’ll join us for the conference. It’s an excellent opportunity to network with other writers and industry professionals, hone your craft, expand your knowledge of publishing trends…and who knows, come away with a book deal! It’s going to be a great weekend for writers in South Carolina.
