St. Davids is special. We're an intimate gathering of writers that provides an opportunity to build a network, not by exchanging business cards in a busy hallway. Here we connect, like real people laughing over lunch, chatting about our projects in the lounge, or giving our elevator pitch in genre group meetings. Writing is a different beast with the digital world, but connecting with people is still done face to face. Click for details of our June 20-24, 2018, conference: "Writing Into The Wild."
