Gold Rush Writers Conference

Dear Writing Compadre–

“Naked, Drunk and Writing” How’s that for a bankable title?

The best selling author, memoirist Adair Lara, will be our headline speaker and workshop leader at the 6th Annual Gold Rush Writers Conference.

Once again we’ll be centered at the Leger Hotel, in the picturesque Gold Country town of Mokelumne Hill, CA. Dates are April 29, 30, and May 1.

At this minute only three slots remain in some of our workshops. On March 30th, the current introductory price of $145 rockets to $175. Of course, $175 is cheap at twice the price, but why pay extra?

We offer you a choice of 15 workshops that run the gamet from futuristic fiction to memoir writing.

A writer whose first novel sold for $100,000 will tell you step by step how she did it. Or, if you don’t wish to go that route, we’ll take you step by step through self publishing.

You’ll find workshops tailored to craft enhancement–dialogue, POV, plot, scene and character development–as well as poetry, novel, short story writing and current marketing trends.

Tom Johnson, Gold Rush’s computer genius, will be back this year to demonstrate just how effective social media marketing can be. See how it can work for you.

Bill LeBlond, senior editor of Chronicle Books, will reveal what every editor wants to see. But those are only a few of many workshops that can change your writing life.

We’ve a very strong conference this year, better than ever. Go to and see for yourself. Remember, too, that the current price of $145 includes a picnic supper dinner and brunch–besides the extra panels and talks. It hardly pays to stay home!

Because a number of our workshops are limited. we encourage you to sign up now at

See you April 29 and in the meantime:

Write On!
