FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 30, 2014
LA CROSSE – Writers from Wisconsin, Minnesota and across the northern Midwest will promote their books during the first annual Authors Showcase book fair and signing hosted by the Wisconsin Writers Association on Saturday, May 3, at the Days Inn Conference Center, French Island, in La Crosse, Wis., from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Open to the public, the Authors Showcase is the tent pole event of the WWA’s two-day Spring Conference that starts Friday afternoon, May 2. Public admission is free to the Showcase only. Registration is required for additional conference activities.
The WWA’s Authors Showcase is a timely opportunity for local writers to meet the book-buying public. Individual display space can be reserved, and authors can sign up for time on our open microphone schedule.
The WWA is a non-profit volunteer organization that has provided services to individuals interested in the literary craft since 1948. This Authors Showcase is one of many service programs offered to our members and other writers including our three-day Fall Conference in October held in Wisconsin Rapids, writing contests, Creative Wisconsin literary magazine, members newsletter, and the Novel-In-Progress Bookcamp.
Display space during the Showcase costs a modest $20, which includes lunch. If you are a WWA member, a $35 includes lunch, display table space, and full access to all conference activities Friday and Saturday (nonmember full registration is $65). Requests by two or more authors to share a table will be honored.
To register, go to the WWA website, www.wiwrite.org and click on Conferences in the menu, then Spring Conference. Displace space is limited.
