Florida Writers Foundation 2010 Full-Day Workshops

— The Best of the Best open to everyone who writes —

The Florida Writers Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation, promotes literacy throughout Florida and enhances writing skills of children, youth and adults. On October 21, 2010, the Foundation presents The Best of the Best at its Second Annual Full Writer’s Day Workshop at the Orlando Marriott, Lake Mary.

“We had such a strong turn-out for the workshop we offered last year that we added four additional topics this year,” said Karen Lieb, President of the Foundation.

This year’s topics are Warrior Writer by Bob Mayer, Novel in a Day by Vic DiGenti, From Query to Pitch by Molli Nickell, How and Why to Use Social Networking Tools by Mary Ann de Stefano and Chris Hamilton, and Screenwriting: From Idea to Big Screen by Chantelle Osman, Andrew J Robinson and John Castellano.

As a convenience to FWA members, the Foundation planned its Full Day of Workshops for the day before the 2010 FWA conference, which is from October 22 -24. There is no membership requirement for those who are interested in attending the Full Day of Workshops on October 21.
“Our purpose is to serve the public. Everyone who writes, no matter what their level or whether they are involved with any organizations, is welcome to attend,” Lieb said.

The Foundation works to increase literacy through elementary school visits for reading days, sponsoring poetry contests, donating books to under-privileged schools, and contributing to middle grade writing contests. All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible, including the workshop registration fees.

Receive an early bird registration special of $90 for FWA members and $110 for non-members before August 31. Beginning September 1 through October 21, the registration fee is $110 for FWA members and $130 for non-members. Workshops are held between 9 am and 5 pm. Snacks and lunch are included.
