SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH 2012 • SAUK CENTRE SCHOOL AUDITORIUM
SINCLAIR LEWIS 2012 WRITERS CONFERENCE
“I think the Sinclair Lewis Writers Conference in Sauk Centre is one of the best values going in the Midwest. It allows aspiring writers to plug in for a day with well-known authors and fellow book lovers. You’ll learn a lot, and it’s downright fun.” Will Weaver
One of the longest-running, most respected writers’ conferences in the upper Midwest is back in Sauk Centre for its 23rd year! The conference has attracted such renowned keynote speakers as Frederick Manfred, Robert Bly, Jon Hassler, Carol Bly, Leif Enger, Bill Holm, Will Weaver, Patricia Hampl, Kevin Kling and Gary Paulsen. This year’s keynote speaker is Don Shelby, Emmy-winning reporter and television anchor, as well as author, playwright and actor. Shelby will be joined by three other professional writers who will share their writing and marketing expertise:
Heid Erdrich will discuss the prose poem and its Japanese cousin
Both beginning and established writers are invited to attend the conference. Participants will have the chance to hear three different presentations, the keynote talk, and a panel discussion during the day.
