April 20-22, 2007 Colorado Springs Marriott.
The Pikes Peak Writers Conference started in 1993 and each April, brings the New York publishing industry to Colorado Springs, Colorado for a weekend packed with workshops, pitch meetings, read & critique sessions and much more. Writer’s Digest Magazine voted Pikes Peak Writers Conference one of the top ten writing conferences in the US. Guest speakers have included Nora Roberts, Stephen Coonts, Diane Mott Davidson, Robert Crais, Jennifer Crusie, Rupert Holmes, David Morrell, Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Jim Butcher.
The conference also sponsors the Paul Gillette Writing Contest which runs annually and whose winners are recognized at the conference. Past winners who went on to publication include: Carol Berg, Margaret Coel, Colleen Collins, Kimberly Willis Holt, Robin Owens, Leslie O’Kane and Ralph Wetterhahn.
I’m happy to say that I’m participating on staff this year in a coordination role.
