Attention all aspiring authors, novelists, screenwriters and English majors! It's time to shake off those post-holiday doldrums and dust off the old Smith-Corona. The Puerto Vallarta Writers Group will hold its 6th annual Puerto Vallarta Writer's Conference at Los Mangos Library, Feb. 25th-27th, with a stellar line-up of best-selling authors, publishing experts and writing professionals prepared to share their secrets, boost your confidence and launch you on your own trajectory toward literary fame/notoriety.
Whether you want to learn the finer points of writing screenplays, need help with your romance novel or could use some practical guidance on shaping a book proposal, this year's writer's conference promises to provide plenty of practical direction for both new and seasoned writers - plus the opportunity to rub sueded elbows with others who simply love to schmooz about the written word.

A southern California native, she lives in Venice CA and spends a lot of time in Beijing, China. Her three cats wish she'd stay put.
