The Missouri Writers Guild is meeting in Kansas City this year. Our Board President, José Faus, is the keynote speaker and several of the other presenters are members and have been faculty for our classes. This is a great opportunity to learn and be inspired. Go to www.MissouriWritersGuild.org for further information.
Discount information for members of The Writers Place:
The Missouri Writers Guild has granted Writers Place members the "Chapter Member" discount for its 101st Annual Writers Conference April 29-May 1 2016 at the Airport Hilton in Kansas City, Mo. (There is no time limit on when the discount applies. At all times before the conference starts.)
Save More Money
Being local means you don't have to pay for a hotel to get a fabulous schedule of breakout sessions with top writers, editors and agent.
Shark Tank presentation to agents and editors
The conference features two Shark Tanks, one for children's literature and one for work for adults. Writers have 90 seconds to pitch their work to all the agents and editors at once -- no "speed dating" hassles or trouble getting an appointment with the one (or more) you want to see.
Hold your spot.
The Shark Tanks are likely to fill up so, if you want to come but want to wait until later to pay, you can reserve your spot with a $50 non-refundable deposit and pay the remainder by April 15.
There are five master classes offered on Sunday, May 1. You can sign up for these with or without conference registration.

P.S. If you've already registered, you can request a refund or apply the difference to a master class. Please email Christine Taylor-Butler and put "Writers Place refund" in the subject line.
