Mad Anthony Writers Conference offers a brilliant opportunity for you to learn from the experts,
network with a community of kindred spirits, have your manuscripts reviewed, and give your
dreams of becoming a published author a chance to come true.
Your attendance also helps spread the joy of reading and writing throughout the larger community.
In its brief existence, this non-profit conference has donated more than $35,000 to local literacy
campaigns. Make plans now to join us—but hurry! Participation is limited to the first 90 registrants
to maintain the unique camaraderie of MAWC.

"What advice would you give to a new (fiction) writer?" That's the question Sky Sloderbeck asked some of our 2011 Mad Anthony Writers Conference presenters--here's what they had to say.
|"Recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Capitalize on your strengths. Critique heavily your weaknesses."
~ Hallie Ephron
|"Accept critique but only accept it from people you respect."
~ Sally Nemeth
|"Treat writing as a craft, not as a hobby."
~ Tracey Dils
~ Paula Munier
|"Perseverance is more important than talent."
~ Ed Davis
|"Read. Read. Read. ... in the genre you want to write."
~ Nancy Pinard
