Willamette Writers Conference

“Transform Your Writing Life” is the theme for this year’s conference in downtown Portland, Oregon — mark 3-7 August 2022 on your calendar.

You can register or learn more about the conference that will feature keynote speakers Mark Oshiro and Laura Stanfill.

Plus: thirty-two in-person professionals presenting, as well as fifteen sharing their knowledge virtually.

It’s a great opportunity, especially for writers in the northwest US.
