FWA Nonfiction Mini-Conference

A special event for nonfiction writers! The first FWA Nonfiction Mini-Conference will be held June 22, 2013, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the University Club in Winter Park. You may book an interview with Katherine Sands, literary agent for Sarah Jane Freymann Literary, or with Chad Rhoad, acquisition editor for The History Press.


You may also arrange for your work to be critiqued by Larry Leech, the journalist and ghost writer. Send your proposal with first three chapters to Chrissy Jackson, Please pay online using the “Shop” tab at All genres are accepted, except poetry and children’s. The first ten submissions will be pre-reviewed, but if you’re number eleven, don’t despair. Make your appointment on the Shopping Cart and bring your work to the conference. Larry will review your submission on the spot.


Let’s not forget the workshops on topics addressing writing basics, the life of a nonfiction writer, ways to make money writing nonfiction, ways to publish, and more. Check the “Conference” tab of the FWA website, and click the “Shop” tab to register online. Questions? Contact
