Tony Hillerman Conference

We'd like to give you a friendly reminder that the deadline for early-bird registration to the Tony Hillerman Writers Conference is quickly approaching! This year, our conference will be held in the lovely Hotel Santa Fe, just steps away from the dynamic Railyard district with its shops and restaurants. The conference program includes a day devoted to the craft of writing and one dedicated to the business of writing. We're proud that experts like Douglas Preston, David Morrell, Sandi Ault, and Hampton Sides are joining our faculty. And, don't forget the opportunity for manuscript critiques with Sean Murphy and Tania Casselle. Be sure to register before September 24 to take advantage of great rates!

And, don't forget: October 9 is the last day to reserve a room at Hotel Santa Fe to the conference rate.

Psst! Be sure to join our growing community of writers on Facebook, where you may just find a special offer for Conference registration.
