Panel Schedule for Superstars Writing Seminar

Here’s the schedule of panels for the next Superstars Writing Seminar, which will be held in Salt Lake City, January 13–15.  As you can see from the list of topics, this three-day seminar is packed with great stuff, no-nonsense and practical material taught by six bestselling authors.   We’re not aware of anything comparable for the serious aspiring, or even professional, writer.

Sessions begin in three weeks.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Sign up now at Superstars Writing Seminar.
