The Roanoke Regional Writers Conference is one of four conferences across the U.S. featured in a two-page spread (pages 74 and 75) in the July/August issue of Writers Digest, a national magazine for writers. The online magazine is here and it is available at book stores.
The Roanoke conference, founded by Valley Business FRONT editor Dan Smith, goes into its fourth year January 28-28 at Hollins University and is part of a featured grouping of conferences held in Boston, Grapevine, Texas and online as a virtual conference.
"This is great exposure for a relatively small [15o students], new and little known--outside this region--conference and we're hoping it helps stir up even more interest than there has been," says Smith.
