$30 Conference for Writers

Terrebonne Parish Library presents its 11th Annual Jambalaya Writers’ Conference & Book Fair. Located in Houma, Louisiana, and held on March 22, this day-long conference hosts many noted speakers. Doors open at 7:30 am, and the last session ends at 5 pm.

I've attended this event several times in previous years. The affordable price, beautiful location, variety of speakers, and hospitality of the hosts make this one of the best conferences in my opinion.

Many of this year's participants have already confirmed, including the 2014 keynote speaker.

ADRIANA TRIGIANI is an award-winning playwright, television writer, and documentary filmmaker. The author of the bestselling Big Stone Gap trilogy and the novel Lucia, Lucia, Trigiani has written the screenplay for the movie Big Stone Gap, which she will also direct. She lives in New York City, with her husband and daughter.

There are more than 15 other authors, editors, and agents scheduled to appear, including: Heather Graham, David Schwartz, Rachel Ekstrom, Nicholas Courage, David Middleton, Katie Depalma, Maggie Mae Gallagher, Roxanne St. Claire, Holly Ingraham, and Kristen Painter. For bios on a few of them: http://mytpl.org/jwc/
