One of the best treats a writer can give themselves is a day with other writers. There is nothing quite as contagious as a room full of individuals who share your passion. I recently enjoyed a mini conference with some southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana writers (see picture on the right). We were treated to a talented panel of speakers.
Jessica Ferguson is the author of The Last Daughter, a romantic suspense. She is a staff writer for Southern Writers Magazine and co-editor of Swamp Lily Review, A Journal of Louisiana Literature & Arts. Jess worked as assistant editor/writer/photographer for The Times of Southwest Louisiana, and her work has appeared in magazines and newspapers in Louisiana and Texas. Her very favorite thing to do in life is to help and encourage others. Catch her blog at http://jessyferguson.blogspot.com.
