Saturday, October 20th, 2018

9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., The University of Tulsa’s Allen Chapman Student Union, 440 S. Gary Ave.

The Conference continues on Saturday, October 20th at The University of Tulsa’s Allen Chapman Student Union at 9:30 a.m. The all-day event will feature writing workshops, readings, panel discussions, one-on-one editing sessions, and novel-pitch critique sessions. Each is designed to stimulate ideas and discussion and to inspire and improve participants’ own writing. Not only will participants be able to attend classes with award-winning authors, but they will be able to interact with them on a personal level.

After a choice of opening panel discussions, participants will choose from a wide array of workshops on writing fiction, poetry, memoir, mystery, young adult literature, romance, and science fiction; ways to attract the attention of literary agents and publishers; and more. Other events throughout the day include readings, lunch, the Nimrod Literary Awards ceremony, and editing and novel-pitch critique sessions, in which participants will have the chance to sit down one on one with an editor to discuss their work.

This year’s participants include fiction writer Rilla Askew, Oklahoma Book Award winner and author of Fire in Beulah; poet Patricia Smith, National Book Award nominee, NAACP Image Award winner, and author of Blood Dazzler; New York Times-bestselling memoirist and poet Jill Bialosky, author of History of a Suicide: My Sister’s Unfinished Life; young adult author Erin Bow, TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award winner and author of The Scorpion Rules; romance author Sarah MacLean, two-time RITA Award winner and author of No Good Duke Goes Unpunished; mystery author Julia Thomas, author of The English Boys; poet Kaveh Bassiri, Witter Bynner Poetry Translation Residency winner; and Carl Engle-Laird, editor at Tor.com Publishing. They will join over thirty other writers and editors.
