Spokane County Library District has announced the fifth annual Spokane Writers Conference will be held at North Spokane Library (44 E Hawthorne Road) on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26 and 27.

This year’s conference is full of informative and creative approaches to writing and offers writer insights about the process of getting their work published. Along with workshops, the conference is offering something new this year: small group intensives. The small group sessions are limited to only 6–8 participants and are laser-focused on a writing topic for the whole session.

This conference boasts a lot of regional and local writing talent. The workshops and small group intensives are led by 12 authors, poets and journalists: John Bladek, Asa Maria Bradley, Phoebe Brinkley, Polly Buckingham, Mary Cronk Farrell, Kelly Milner Halls, Kailee Haong, Maureen McQuerry, Erin Pringle, Megan Rowe, Stephen Wallenfels and Carolyne Wright.

Learn how to query and pitch your writing. Explore your poetic voice. Deepen the emotional resonance on the page. Imagine your words on the silver screen, and then write that screenplay. Weave memory into your writing to make it come to life. Wrangle the dialogue dragon so it breathes fire into your stories’ conversations.

Each workshop and small group session require online registration and are provided free of charge. Registration opens on Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. Register at
