Upcoming events

    • April 06, 2019
    • 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    • County Hall Meeting Rooms 1 & 2

    The WFSC presents a full-day conference featuring 4 workshop sessions that appeal not only to the writer but also to those who have a passion for the written word. We not only discuss how to begin your story - fiction and memoir - but also talk about online research and what you need to collect to accompany your manuscript if you are considering having it published. Our popular Your Lifetime of Stories session will be geared to those who are working with others to bring their stories to the page - we encourage those who are working with seniors to attend. We don't want to lose any of their precious memories.

    Full-Day One Price: Members $80.00 | Non-Members $100.00 | Single Sessions $30
