Kennesaw, GA, November 6, 2010—Don’t Ever Give Up. The 2010 Red Clay Writing Conference will share that powerful message with attendees, and based on success stories from previous events, this event is certainly the place for both the professional and creative writers to find support, learn great tips for writing, and network with other writers from around the state. “For me, Red Clay has become my "can't miss" annual writers' conference. It's not just how much I learn - and I always learn a lot; it's the opportunity to meet and network with the seminar leaders and fellow authors. If you want to sharpen your craft and keep up with the rapidly evolving writing industry, don't miss it!  (J. Steve Miller, President, Legacy Educational Resources, Author of Enjoy Your Money! How to Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It.)”…

Regardless of the genre, all writers are encouraged to attend this day-long event, Saturday, November 6, at the Kennesaw State University’s Student Center (University Room A). This gathering will look at all aspects of writing, from the process of writing to marketing that writing. The panels of professional writers and editors will inspire attendees to write from the heart, transforming their writer’s dream into reality.
