The North Carolina Writers' Network West (http://netwestwriters.blogspot.com/) and the Jackson County Public Library (http://fontanalib.org/sylva) present A Day for Writers, a one-day writing conference for writers of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, children's literature, and anyone who wants to publish their writing.
Pastry and coffee in the morning, and lunch provided! Conference open to the public, walk-ins welcome. (But it helps if you register in advance so that sufficient lunches are provided.)
Saturday, May 6th offers a full day of sessions, plus a panel on publishing and marketing.
