Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!
I received a notice in the mail this week with information on the University of New Mexico Writer's Conference coming up Jul 24-31, 2016, in Santa Fe. There will be a Faculty and Editors, Agents & Guests to provide lots of information on writing and publishing. The cost excludes me, being $700 for the week or $400 for the weekend. The conference used to be the Taos Summer Writers' Conference. Contact unmwritersconf.unm.edu for more information.
Along with that, the New Mexico Book Coop has a very active schedule of events with a monthly luncheon, book signings, classes, and "Cover Reads", a promotional pub that goes out once a month. They have several Awards in their writing programs for Arizona and New Mexico stories. Contact: nmbookcoop.com for more info.
Writing is a great pastime or career.
