The Writers' Conference
After Laura Belmont finishes writing her first novel, she decides to quit her job and end the ten-year affair she’s had with her married boss. She packs her bags and heads off to The Clymer Workshop, one of the oldest writers' conferences in the country, where she hopes to make a connection with one of the famous staff authors or a well-known literary agent and change her life forever.
Set in beautiful rural Western New York, Laura finds the Workshop anything but tranquil. The male writers on the staff are more interested in having sex with her than in her manuscript. Intense friendships and affairs blossom between the aspiring writers, while staff members worry that their reputations may be at risk, as well as their marriages. Anxiety builds as hopes dwindle, leading Laura to think she's made the wrong choice. Then something extraordinary happens that makes her change her mind.
The Writers’ Conference will be of special interest to anyone who has considered attending a writers’ workshop or who has aspired to become a writer.
