I have been asked to speak on “Writing for Children” at the Space Coast Writer’s Guild Conference next weekend. In addition, I will be working one-on-one with authors to get their manuscripts ready for submission during mini-critique sessions.
I am honored to participate as an instructor. After attending for years, I look forward to giving back. Here are the details:
The Cocoa Beach Writers Conference
International Palms Resort and Conference Center

The Space Coast Writers’ Guild was first established in 1982 as the Florida Space Coast Writers’ Conference, Inc. with the express purpose of providing an annual conference to bring together area authors with publishers, agents, and other successful authors. We are proud to continue the tradition with the Cocoa Beach Writers Conference.
Our conference has been touted as one of the most attendee and agent/publisher friendly in the country. We are consistently lauded for providing at a reasonable cost a small-conference atmosphere that gives attendees the one-on-one feel they can’t get from larger events.
In addition to individual appointments with agents/publishers, we will again be offering a mini-critique of a portion of your manuscript. This will be a limited opportunity, so sign up early.
An adult writing contest is being offered, with the first, second, and third place winners announced at the conference. More details can be found on the SCWG home page.
All conference registrations include an invitation to a Friday evening reception featuring the following:
- Worst Query Letter Ever contest
- Open mic
- Light hors d’oeuvres
