May 8 is deadline for early bird rate for Jackson Hole Writers Conference

This update about the Jackson Hole Writers Conference comes from Tim Sandlin:

May 8 is the deadline to secure the early bird special and your four days of Jackson Hole with notebook in hand, at a great rate.

We just added three new faculty members. Our 2010 team is bigger than it's ever been. June 24-27 will be packed with outstanding authors, editors and agents. We're almost as curious as you are - what will happen this year as these myriad voices, ideas and words start to mingle along the Tetons, pushing your work to new levels.

The newest additions for 2010, totaling 36 faculty, sharing their writing and publishing insights and critiquing your manuscripts, are:
  • Jeremy Schmidt as writer, author or co-author of more than 15 books, and photographer of natural history and adventure travel…

  • Broughton Coburn has worked on environmental conservation projects in Nepal, Tibet and India for two of the past three decades. He has written, edited or collaborated on seven books...

  • Marisa Corvisiero is an author and an attorney as well as an agent. She is the founder of The Corvisiero Law Practice, P.C…. In the last few years Marisa has merged her passions in writing and in the law into her entertainment law practice, and she is now representing authors...

  • Needless to say, we are very excited about the entire lineup for this year including Janet Fitch, Winifred Gallagher, Tim Cahill, Jeff Chu, and many more. See any of these links for our tracks to your distinct interests: Fiction, Creative nonfiction, Poetry, Magazine, and Young Adult; plus Editors & Agents.

    The fee for Early Birds who register on or before May 8 is $355 USD. After May 8, the rate goes up to $385 USD. Your registration fee includes all events at the conference plus a welcome cocktail party and the barbecue.

    If you are a parent, you can register for both yourself and your teen writer! Parent + teen writer fee: $575

    If you are a teacher, one University of Wyoming graduate enrichment credit will be available to those interested for a $40 registration fee. Registration and payment will take place at the conference.
