|Is this your idol?|
For novelists and poets though, a writer's conference can be just the thing to get those fingers back on the keys. Problem is most of them are damned expensive. Solution: stay local and take advantage of the soon-to-be-expiring offer from the organizers of the FIU/Hutchinson Island Writer's Conference, held at the Marriott Hutchinson Island Beach Resort this coming October 22-24.
From now until June 1, registration is only $300, with a reduced $129 room rate for conference participants (Code: FIUFIUA). Call FIU at 305-919-5857 for details or go to their website.
