Join NCWN at Saga 2020 this Weekend

Everything we’re about to say is subject to change, so be sure to keep an eye on for the latest.

The North Carolina Writers’ Network is looking forward to exhibiting at this weekend’s Saga 2020 Conference, March 6-8, in Charlotte.

Vincent Vezza, NCWN’s Cabarrus-Rowan Regional Rep, will be on-site Saturday and Sunday.  (Learn more about Vincent and his books here.) Be sure to stop by our table and say hello!

What is Saga?

Saga is THE professional development conference for genre fiction writers on the East Coast. It’s two days of workshops, presentations, panels, and one-on-one critiques from award winners, best sellers, and professional writers, editors, agents, and publishers.

Imagine the best writing tracks from your favorite fandom con. Now take the professional development aspects of your favorite writing conference. Put those together, and you have Saga. It’s the writing conference for the people the MFA programs hate. It’s where you go to learn from the people with their boots on the ground and their hands on the keyboard.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t at least mention that, to put it mildly, some folks have the yips about being out and about in public right now. John Hartness, author, publisher, and conference organizer, sent the following to all Saga registrants just this week:

With all the recent ews and developments concerning novel coronavirus COVID-19, I wanted to inform everyone of the precautions we are taking at SAGA to help keep all our attendees, faculty, staff, and volunteers safe.

First, we encourage everyone to follow the CDC guidelines on behavior and cleanliness, including washing hands with warm soapy water (a lot), limiting personal contact (fist bumps are better than handshakes), and taking general care of your health (hydrate, get plenty of rest, take your vitamins).

In addition to this, we will be providing hand sanitizer in all attendee conference bags, as well as faculty bags, and there will be hand sanitizer available in all panel rooms and in the Muggles Market Too areas.

We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend!

So, wash your hands folks, and have a great Con!
