WRITE NOW 2015 Registration Now Open!

Write Now! 2015, Triangle Area Freelancers’ 8th annual freelance writing conference, will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at Wake Technical Community College Northern Wake Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina– and it promises to be our best event yet!
Keynote speaker:
NYT best-selling author David Morrell
the father of Rambo.
David will also be presenting two sessions as part of our new Fiction Track: A Trap for the Unwary: The First Person Viewpoint, and Easy Ways to Improve your Description and Dialogue.
David will be joined on the Fiction Track by 2014 Piedmont Laureate Carrie Knowles, who will be presenting a session titled No Conflict, No Story, and veteran screenwriter Scott Myers, who teaches screenwriting at UNC Chapel Hill.

Other Write Now! presenters include Linda Formichelli, who will be offering an informative session on writing a killer query letter; award-winning NC author Kala Ambrose, who will discuss How to Build Your Brand, Create Your Platform and Establish Your Expert Status; and veteran freelancer Mark Cantrell, who will be offering a session on research that will appeal to both fiction and nonfiction writers. In addition, Melissa Jeglinski of The Knight Agency and Lisa Hagan of the Paraview Literary Agency will be co-hosting a session about the writer/agent relationship and taking questions from the audience.

But that’s not all! For the first time, Write Now! will be offering a third track devoted exclusively to technical writing, in association with the Society for Technical Communication.
Sessions will include a Technical Communication Round Table, Visual Web Design, Grant Writing and Content Strategy.

Write Now! 2015 is pleased to return to Wake Technical Community College Northern Wake Campus in Raleigh. Amenities include a 250-seat amphitheater with stadium seating, additional classrooms that seat 60 each, and an atrium with tables and seating for 100, so you’ll be able to sit with friends and make new ones during lunch.

TAF has worked extremely hard to keep the cost of Write Now! 2015 affordable for all writers. Registration is just $69; $59 for seniors 65-plus and students with valid ID; and $80 at the door. Registration includes all conference activities, continental breakfast during registration, catered box lunch and all beverages. We also will be giving away some exciting door prizes.
