Central Coast Writers' Conference 2013
Each year, SLO NightWriters is proud to be one of the sponsors of The Central Coast Writers' Conference held at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo. Founded in 1984, this event has since that time become one of the most popular such gatherings in California. The conference was judged "Best Value Writers' Conference in California" by Sunset Magazine.
Quoting Jack Grapes - Keynote Speaker for the 2012 Conference:
"If you weren't at the conference this year, it was, indeed, inspiring. Every workshop was interesting, inspiring and helpful.
And I was able to announce next year's dates and Keynote...something I wanted to do for three years now....
Rebecca Rasmussen, author of The Bird Sisters, is our keynote...I will go out on a limb and say this book is destined to become one of those Great American Novels. It is that good."
When a bird flies into a window in Spring Green, Wisconsin, sisters, Milly and Twiss get a visit. Twiss listens to the bird's heartbeats assessing what she can fix and what she can't, while Milly listens to the heartaches of people who've brought them. The two sisters have spent their lives nursing people and birds back to health.
Be there September 20-21, 2013 at Cuesta College hosted by Cuesta College Community Programs."
