2018 Writers in Paradise – ACCEPTANCE!!!!!

Submissions were closed on 11/15/17 for the 2018 Writers in Paradise conference in St Petersburg, FL.

I submitted early and have had my fingers crossed ever since.

On or by12/1/17 all applicants were to be notified of selections.
Since there are only TWO fiction seminars, and only TWELVE may attend each, that makes my odds for getting in TWENTY-FOUR out of EVERYBODY!

I am pleased to share the below email from Writer’s in Paradise
