MWA Members: Put Your Book in the Auction Basket at Pennwriters 2013!

Are you an MWA member with a published book? Would you like to reach new readers while supporting a worthy cause at the same time? If so, consider donating a copy of your book for the MWA basket to be auctioned off at the 26th Annual Pennwriters Conference, May 17-19, at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott!

The annual Pennwriters Conference is hosted by our newfound friends, Pennwriters, a nonprofit organization for writers in our northern neighbor (and beyond). Money raised from the gift basket auction is used to support the organization’s broad range of programs that include regular meetings, online courses, local workshops, and of course the annual conference.

Traditionally-published and self-published books are welcome to be included in the gift basket. All donations to the MWA gift basket are tax deductible.

And if you’d like to attend the conference, registration is now open! Literary agent Donald Maass will be the keynote speaker at this year’s conference, and the programming includes pre-program intensive workshops as well as sessions on subjects such as finding an agent, creating a book trailer, writing query letters, and even how to beat writers’ block.

Please send all donations to Jessica Williams, Pennwriters’ secretary and 2013 conference coordinator. Feel free to drop Jessica a line if you have any questions.

And big thanks to MWA member Joya Fields for bringing MWA and Pennwriters together around this very cool idea! Here’s hoping it becomes an annual tradition.
