Author and internet marketing expert Angela Render will be a speaker at the 12th Annual Bay to Ocean Writers Conference, to be held February 21, 2009.
The one-day conference features workshops, speeches, and panel discussions on a wide variety of topics pertaining to the craft of writing, the publishing business, and the intricacies of particular genres. The 2008 speaker lineup included Maryland Poet Laureate Michael Glaser, Emmy award-winning TV writer Danny Tepper, Shar McBee, best- selling author of motivational books, mystery novelist Donna Andrews, literary agent Gail Ross, and former Writer’s Digest editor Melanie Rigney.
