Solon Springs, WI
The St. Croix Writers and Wisconsin Writers Association are pleased to announce the Northland Fall Writers Conference, September 28, 2019. Registration begins at 8:30 AM, at the Solon Springs Community Center, 11523 S. Business Highway 53, Solon Springs, WI.
The conference is designed for you, writers and readers. During this exciting and eclectic day, we will explore and learn about several genres of writing, plus examine the benefits of professional editing for your manuscripts. This full-day conference includes opportunities for you to purchase books by regional authors in a vendor area.
Brian Freeman, international best-selling thriller author, will present "Thrill Seeker: A Writer's Life in the Northland." Freeman is well known for his strong, complex characters including Jonathan Stride, Frost Easton, and Cab Bolton, with the Stride detective series set in Duluth, MN. Brian's books are sold in 46 countries and translated into 22 languages. He lives and writes in St. Paul, MN.
During his fifteen years as a Midwestern writer, Brian Freeman has seen the publishing world turn upside down and reinvent itself. But one thing hasn't changed: the love that readers have for a great story.
Brian will take you through the evolution of his career, from writing award-winning Northland thrillers to recently taking over Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne franchise, with the next book in the series, The Bourne Conspiracy, planned for a 2020 release.
Brian will also speak about how he develops characters and stories for different settings, platforms, and audiences. He will answer your questions about thriving in today's publishing industry. Visit his website. www.bfreemanbooks.com
