Missouri Writers Guild Conference

http://missouriwritersguild.org/ Conference May 5-7.
I was a member for a couple of years and have attended their conferences. I have enjoyed making new writer friends, learning from other authors and illustrators, and they always have informative speakers. Well worth attending each year.
