Live Interview Schedule for the MWG Conference!

Live Interview Schedule for the MWG Conference!
By Brad R. Cook

The Missouri Writers Guild’s Write Time! Writer Place! Write Now! 2012 Conference starts today!

To showcase this great annual writing conference The Writers’ Lens has partnered with St. Louis Writers Guild and Missouri Writers Guild to host a series of live webchats with the conference speakers. It is our hope to expand the attendees' experience and highlight this wonderful conference. Not to mention give those people who can’t make it a chance to get an inside look.

T.W. Fendley, David Lucas, and I will conduct a series of short interviews with the Speakers and Organizers of the MWG Conference. We will then post the interviews here on The Writers’ Lens, as well as St. Louis Writers Guild’s Eliot Blog and perhaps even the MWG Conference Blog. Links to these sites will be posted next week.

Each interview will last about 10 minutes and will cover topics specific to each speaker.

Here is our interview schedule –
Friday, April 20, 3 – 4 pm and 9:30 – 10:10pm
Saturday, April 21, 3 – 5:30pm and 10:30 – 11pm
Sunday, April 22, 12:30 – 1:50pm

Scheduled Speaker Interviews – These times are subject to change
Rhonda Penders – Friday 3pm
Christie Craig – Friday 9:30pm
Ann Behar – Saturday 5pm
Christina Katz – Saturday 3-4:30pm
Paul Lesko – Saturday 3-4:30pm

Best of all, there are a couple of ways to participate.
If you want to watch the Webchats live, you will need to send an email with your name and email address to writerslens (at) gmail (dot) com you will then be sent an invite you can use to watch the interviews. People viewing the live webchats can ask questions via text chat.

If you’re not able to watch the live interviews but still want to ask a question – you can – just tweet your question. Please include our Twitter name @writerslens or we might not see you question.

  1. The interviews are running late due to speaker arrivals at the conference. Please plan a ten minute delay.
