New This Year at the JRW Conference: RVA ♥ Writers!



This year we’ll be sharing a portion of our conference with all of Richmond—and sharing Richmond with our conference goers. Saturday afternoon and evening hours are set aside for some of our speakers to give open presentations at various RVA locations. A rider board will be available at the conference for attendees who need transportation.



RVA ♥ Writers will include free presentations from

Kwame Alexander, T. R. Simon, and Stacy Whitman on  Multicultural Books: The Importance of Diversity in Children’s Literature,

Bruce Holsinger, Sarah MacLean, and Kelly O’Connor Macnees on Taking Liberties: The Pleasures and Pitfalls of Historical Fiction,

Hugh Howey on Rapid Fire: Self-Publishing and the Changing Climate for Writers and Readers,

Brian Jay Jones on Not Just Muppets: Jim Henson’s Cultural Influence, and
