If it’s the Labor Day weekend, then it must be time once again for WriterCon. Masterminded by my good old friend, frequent publisher, and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Bill Bernhart, it brings scores of writers, agents, and editors together every year at Oklahoma City’s classic Skirvin Hotel.
I’ll be coming down with another great friend, the author, actor, and standup comedian Barry Friedman, to participate in three Saturday classes — on writing memoir and biography, collaboration, and how humor and horror, to a writer, are two sides of the same coin. I know it’ll be fun, as always, and good to see people I look forward to visiting with every year.
Yes, things are different now, but Bill assures me all salient precautions — and then some — will be taken with regard to the pandemic, including a face-mask requirement. Plus, the classes are going to be streamed, for those who would rather participate that way.
