We supply the topics and the experts. You bring your questions!
James River Writers is pleased to announce a new opportunity at the 17th Annual JRW Conference to get face-to-face advice from professionals in the fields of writing, publishing, and promotion.
Attendees who buy a Shoptalk ticket will be able to drop-in to the Shoptalk room during any of the seven, one-hour periods the room will be open over the course of the two-day conference. Stay ten minutes or the whole hour chatting informally with writing professionals about your writing questions.
Each hour, seven professionals will be available to talk with you about a variety of topics from writing for kids and teens to creating a podcast and everything in between! (see schedule below).
Room monitors will be on hand to be sure no one table is overwhelmed and that Shoptalk attendees have a chance to chat with the professionals.
To participate in Shoptalk, you must be registered for the conference and purchase a $50 add-on ticket. Only a limited number of Shoptalk add-on tickets will be sold, so we cannot guarantee they’ll be available to purchase on-site. If you buy the add-on, your name badge will have a special stamp admitting you to the Shoptalk room.
All-inclusive members are automatically given Shoptalk access and do not need to sign up or pay extra.
