The 6th Annual Japan Writers Conference, 2012

The Sixth Annual Japan Writers Conference will be in Kyoto this year at the Iwadegawa campus of Doshisha Women’s University.

See the Doshisha Women’s University homepage here.

This is the second time we’ve been there and it is a beautiful place. The dates are November 10 and 11, 2012.

As always, there will be a lot to learn, a lot to talk about, and a lot to take home. Do you wonder what can Facebook and other social media can do for your writing career? Two presentations will look at this issue, along with another on getting a film option for your novel. There will be  presentations on writing for children and young adults, along with a SCBWI gathering. Writing about the military, about Japan, sessions on traditional Japanese form and genre, editing, translation, and two publishing markets actively seeking your work are all part of the program, too. Presenters and participants will come from all over Japan, as well as from Canada, Australia, and Hong Kong. As in the past, this will be this will be a full and lively weekend.
