The conference planning committee of the 13th Annual Bay to Ocean Writers Conference has been meeting for over a year to plan this year’s event, which will feature 23 experienced authors, poets, film writers, writing instructors, editors, publishers and agents. The conference, one of the region’s premier educational seminars, will be held February 20, 2010 at Chesapeake College, Todd PerformingArts Center, in Wye Mills, Maryland. Interested participants are being encouraged to register for the conference soon as the conference has sold out the last four years. The writers conference is sponsored by the Eastern Shore Writers’ Association, an all volunteer nonprofit organization supporting writers and the literary arts on the Delmarva Peninsula.
