If you have a manuscript, now is the time to brush it up, and have it critiqued by agents and editors.

This is the premier conference for the military writing genre and any help you could provide in spreading the word is most welcome. The organizers of the conference are truly in need of people to commit now and make this inaugural year a great success! The organizers have a great group of guest speakers and literary agents who will be available for mentoring and manuscript critiquing. This is intended to be a casual conference to meet with other authors and a setting to learn from those who have successfully published.
