This week authors flock to New York City for the 2011 Romance Writers of America Annual Conference. Published authors and those looking to sell their stories meet up for workshops on the craft and business of writing. This year big name authors Madeline Hunter, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Diana Gabaldon, among others, will attend and share their experiences in the industry with other convention attendees. And tomorrow night the RWA conference opens their doors to readers as well as authors, when the organization hosts their annual Readers for Life giant book fair. The event raises funds for illiteracy programs and brings together nearly 500 authors — including Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jayne Ann Krentz, Nalini Singh and Julia Quinn. Get all the details about the conference and the fundraising book signing in this video interview with author Dorien Kelley, the President of Romance Writers of America.
To get a peek at the authors who are contributing to the RWA literacy fundraiser that will take place tomorrow from 5:30 - 7:30 at the Marriot Marquis in Times Square, you can check back on Wednesday for our coverage of the event!
