Summer in Words

I’m sorry to announce that Summer in Words 2015 has been cancelled. I’ve been involved in my mother’s end-of-life care this year and last fall. She died recently and because of the uncertain nature of my schedule and demands of family matters I was not able to spend the many hours needed to organize this delightful conference. Much of the planning, marketing, correspondence happens six -eight months prior to the conference and I was caught up in helping my parents.  I apologize for disappointing people who had planned to attend and I’ll miss those glorious days in June at the Hallmark Inn and Resort.

On a good note, I’ll be organizing a shorter Claim Your Story conference at the Hallmark this fall. Stay tuned for more information.

Jessica Page Morrell lives in Portland, Oregon where she is surrounded by writers and watches the sky all its moods and shades. She’s the author of Thanks, But This Isn’t For Us, A (Sort of) Compassionate Guide to Why Your Writing is Being Rejected; Bullies, Bastards & Bitches, How to Write the Bad Guys in Fiction; The Writer’s I Ching: Wisdom for the Creative Life, Voices from the Street; Between the Lines: Master The Subtle Elements Of Fiction Writing; and Writing Out the Storm. Morrell works as a highly-sought after developmental editor because if your characters are a bundle of quirks and inconsistencies, or the plot stalls and the scenes don’t flow, these problems need to be unriddled before you submit it to an agent or editor. She also works on memoirs and nonfiction books with a special focus on logic and voice. She began teaching writers in 1991 and now teaches through a series of workshops in the Northwest and at writing conferences throughout North America and lectures to various writing organizations. She is the former writing expert at iVillage.com which was voted as one of the best 101 sites for writers. In 2008 she founded Summer in Words, a yearly writing conference held on the Oregon coast. She hosts a Web site at www.writing-life.com, and she’s written a monthly column about topics related to writing since 1998 that currently appears in The Willamette Writer. She also contributes to The Writer and Writers Digest magazines, writes a monthly e-mail newsletter, The Writing Life, and a Web log at http://thewritinglifetoo.blogspot.com
