Workshops and Keynote presentations for this conference are chosen to help attendees in various stages of the writing journey. But sometimes we just need to talk one-on-one about the specific problems we are facing. Our speakers offer professional coaching in the field of their expertise. Limited sessions are available during the conference. Some sessions you will need to contact the speaker before the conference to set the appointment directly with him or her. The information provided below provides the details of what is offered.
