The 16th Annual Bay to Ocean Writers Conference will be held February 23, 2013 at Chesapeake College, in Wye Mills, Maryland. This year’s conference features thirty sessions/workshops—the most ever. Topics include: the internet for writers, the craft of writing, genre fiction, poetry, publishing, marketing, editing, pitching, essays, and non-fiction. One-to-one manuscript reviews by published authors will be available by appointment. Conference fees will be $99 for adults and $55 for students with ID. As one of the region’s premier educational seminars, last year’s conference drew a sellout crowd of over 200 writers from five states and the District of Columbia. Registration is open now at http://www.baytoocean.com. Early registration is recommended as the conference has sold out for the last six years.
