The 2nd Pocono Writers’ Conference

The 2nd Pocono Writers Conference is scheduled for January 11, 2015. We have some wonderful guest authors who will be making presentations and answering questions. Our Main Guest is novelist and screenwriter Chuck Wendig, who has written many advice books for authors.

Last year, we did a day-long panel discussion over a number of topics. This year, each author will give an hour long presentation and at the end of the day we will have all of them together for a question-and-answer period.

I will be the host and emcee but will participate in the final question-and-answer period.

We’re discussing among ourselves what the topics will be but are abiding by the Pocono Writers Group’s desire to concentrate on writing skills as opposed to the kind of issues that come up after the work is done (such as getting an agent, whether to self-publish, and so on). The Q&A section will address anything though.

Registration is free but space is limited. You can reserve by calling the library at 570-421-0800 x 316 or by emailing

This will be held at the Hughes Public Library in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, about 80 miles from New York city, just over the border from New Jersey. It will start around 9 am and run till 5 or so. Lunch is not provided but there are plenty of places nearby, you can bring a lunch, and the library may be selling sandwiches.
