Update from the 2014 CRW Conference Director

Dear Castle Rock Writers:

Castle Rock Writers has grown over the past few years. We are pleased to announce that we have received 501(c )(3) non-profit designation. This means we will be able to apply for grants and funding to support new monthly education workshops as well as our yearly writers conference.

CRW also published a book, Chronicles of Douglas County, Colorado through The History Press which will provide ongoing royalties to the organization. It was a most challenging project. Check out the website for links regarding the book which was released July 29, 2014.  The book will also be available at the Passing the Quill Conference Bookstore.

I am pleased to be a part of all CRW has accomplished.  Most important for me, throughout all this growth, is that CRW has never lost sight of our mission–supporting, encouraging, and educating writers seeking publication in commercial fiction and non-fiction. So, thank you for being part of this journey!

Keep on writing! See you in Castle Rock in October!
