Now in its 28th year, the Central Coast Writers’ Conference features workshops, table talks and a writing competition, among other events. Presenters include science fiction writer Jeff Carlson, literary agent Jill Corcoran, fantasy writer Barbara Hodges and young adult novelist Robin Mellom.
This year’s highlights include two new workshops — Chevron Tech, Toys & Toys: Self Publishing Boot Camp & Guerilla Marketing Tips, featuring nonfiction author Carla King and senior literary agent Laurie McLean, and VAC Travel Writers’ Boot Camp, featuring travel journalists Judith Fein and Paul Ross.
Registration is $60 for the travel writing workshop, $62 to $72 for the tech boot camp, $169 to $179 for just the conference, and $199 to $208 for some combination of the three.
