Award Winning Authors Coming

By Herbert W. Piekow

 

writers-conferencePrep your computer because the Seventh Annual Lake Chapala Writers Conference is supplying the speakers to kick-start your inspiration and improve your writing skills. The Hotel Real de Chapala will once more be the location for the Lake Chapala Writers Conference, January 26th, 27th and 28th, 2011. The first evening is a reception where you can mingle with fellow writers and get to know Bob Dugoni and Mary Rosenblum, this year’s conference presenters.

New this year will be the chance to participate in a critique session, where attendees may have up to three pages of their work critiqued. Jay White is a well-known local writer and a former University Instructor of Creative Writing who will share his knowledge with those attendees who wish professional feedback. Also, for those who attend the conference there will be a chance to sell their books.

Robert Dugoni has written five best selling novels. One critique said, “His books remind me of the best of John Grisham . . . only better!” Dugoni graduated in Journalism from Stanford University, worked newspaper reporting before studying law – he did practice law until the love of writing conquered him. Mary Rosenblum in 1994 won the Compton Crook Award for her novel The Drylands. In 2009 she won The Sidewise Award for Alternate History. She has written nine novels, has had more than sixty short stories published and loves to teach. “I love sharing the gift and passion and I have a lot of students who have published. Sharing my knowledge and expertise is as satisfying to me as writing.”

The cost for the Lake Chapala Writers Conference remains at $950 pesos ($80 US or Canadian), for registration before Christmas; after that date, if there is available space, the cost will be $1,150 pesos ($95 US or Canadian). Registration includes two lunches and beverages during breaks. You may register at Diane Pearl’s Gallery on Colon in Ajijic or by contacting This email address is being protected from spambots.
