This coming October 12 and 13, both writers and people who love to read have a great opportunity. The annual Rivers of Ink conference, about book writing and what readers love to read, will be held in Richland, Washington for both authors and readers of all ages.
Starting on October 12, writers’ workshops will be held at the Richland library from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM. A lunch will be included, and the cost is $40.00. A workshop by New York Times Bestselling author Robert Dugoni will be held at 1:30 PM that day.
Next, a free seminar on both writing and reading will be held October 13 from 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM at the Richland Community Center. There will be panel discussions by Pacific Northwest authors for writers and readers of all genres and age groups (including picture books, mid-grade, and young adult as well as non-fiction and fiction for adults), book signings, and free snacks.
Last year’s Rivers of Ink conference was a huge success, and boasted a great crowd of both readers and writers. Inland Northwest young adult authors Stephen Wallenfels and Maureen McQuerry, as well as many other local authors, gave presentations at the writers’ workshops and during the panel discussions. The events were all excellent literary learning experiences for the attendees.
