Houston Writers/Would-be Writers to be Focus of April 13-14 Conference:

Mon, 27 Feb 2012 19:54:32 EST

HOUSTON, February 27, 2012 – Houston writers will gather April 13-14, when the Houston Writers' Guild (HWG) holds the 2012 4th annual writers' conference in Sugar Land. The conference will take place at the Sugar Land Baptist Church at 16755 Southwest Freeway, 'There's something for every writer—published or unpublished, fiction or non-fiction,' said Tina Winograd, 2012 HWG conference director. 'The publishing world is changing. In some ways, it is easier to get a book published today. Our experts will address traditional publishing as well as online publishing and e-books. Make an appointment to have your writing critiqued by a published writer or to run your story idea by a literary agent.'

Writers may choose between several tracks, including mystery/crime, nonfiction/memoir, young adult and writing/publishing basics. Winograd said the two-day meeting includes presentations from:

  • Hollywood 'Story Merchant' Ken Atchity, entertainment and literary agent
  • Self-Publishing super-star and zombie thriller novelist Rhiannon Frater
  • Young Adult author Nikki Loftin, author of two novels and numerous short stories
  • True crime writer and novelist Kathryn Casey
  • Larry Thompson, author of legal thriller, 'The Trial'
  • Award-winning novelist and poet Chitra Divakaruni
  • New York literary agents


Cost of Houston writers conference cost is $125 for Friday and Saturday; $100 for Saturday only. Saturday lunch is included in the fee. Friday night dinner optional. For an additional cost, attendees may schedule brief one-on-one sessions with literary agents and published writers.
