The 2014 Redwood Writers Conference, From Pen to Published, will be held April 26 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Bertolini Student Center at Santa Rosa Junior College. The conference features keynote speakers John Rothmann (author and political analyst for KKSF 910 AM) and Dana Gioia (poet, critic, and teacher). The day is structured into four different tracks: craft, genre, publishing, and marketing; attendees can plan their own schedule. Also just for registrants, there will be both a prose and a poetry contest, with awards given out the day of the conference. Parking is free. Cost for the conference is $125 for California Writers Club members, $155 for non-members, and $80 for students, if registered before March 15.
