I Received an Invitation to be a Speaker at a Writer’s Conference!

My fame is spreading! Well,  maybe it’s not my fame that’s spreading, maybe it’s just my name. Or perhaps they are the same? Yikes, writing like that would never get into one of my novels. Inadvertant rhymes? That won’t do! Still, the sentiment is true. Someone, somewhere has heard of me, because yesterday I received an invitation to be a speaker at a writer’s conference!

Scribblers’ Retreat Writers’ Conference would like to cordially invite Pat
Bertram to be a guest speaker for one of our four conferences in 2010. We
have ten speakers for each conference and four conferences annually.

Scribblers’ Retreat Writers’ Conference is an international, non-profit,
literary arts organization dedicated to bringing together “those who have
made it” to “those who want to”. By creating the most innovative,
educational, and dynamic symposiums composed of the literary elite, we offer
those attending a unique opportunity to learn from and socialize with the
people they admire. This is a way to impart your talents to the global
community; to make a difference.

The conferences are held on beautiful St. Simons Island, Georgia. You will
be able to take advantage of the tranquil atmosphere provided by live oaks
and beaches, the history and art, ghost and dolphin tours, or even climb the
old light house.

Please look at your calendar to see which dates would be more preferable and
browse our website below. Join us in this grand endeavor in literacy and in
fulfilling dreams of success.

To talk about writing in a gorgeous place? Sounds like a dream. I have to choose a single topic, though. Hmmm. Which should it be: Style and technique? Networking? Writing support groups and blogs? I’ll get back to you — and them — about that.

    Very cool, Pat! Go get ’em.

  2. owlandsparrow Says:

    How wonderful! That’s such a great opportunity, congratulations!

  3. Joyce Norman Says:

    Pat, I used to be publicist for Eugenia Price, Southern novelist who wrote novels about Savannah, St. Simons Island and down to St. Augustine, FL. I worked on St. Simons Island and there is truly no more beautiful or tranquil place in America! What a gig!

    I may try and come to this conference. What month is it in 2010? This is an unbelievable place. You’ll love it!

    • Pat Bertram Says:

      I’ll probably do the one in August. Probably not a good time of year to be going down south, but November is not a good time for me to travel — I might not be able to dig my way out of the snow!

  4. joylene Says:

    That is awesome, Pat. Totally deserving, too. Have a great time.

  5. Claire Collins Says:

    OK, we have a mission to make sure you sell enough books to get there in style next year.

    • Pat Bertram Says:

      It could be a good promotion for Second Wind. The information they sent me said: It would also be most beneficial if you would contact your publisher and distributor to ask them to also attend the conference. We would be glad to send them information. Since we do not have their contact information, it is imperative that you, as the author, have them promote you in conjunction with Scribblers’ Retreat Writers’ Conference.

  6. Sheila Deeth Says:

    Sounds awesome! Wonderful news.

  7. knightofswords Says:

    This will be the perfect moment, Pat, for a really shocking speech that gets you lots of publicity. You can always deny it later claiming you were drunk or hypnotized.


    • Pat Bertram Says:

      Great idea! Especially if I were to claim I’d been hypnotized — it would fit in well with the books I write. Now to figure out a shocking speech . . .

Please leave a comment. I'd love to hear what you have to say.
