BWRC '08 provides speakers and participants with an opportunity to focus intensively on specific writing topics. Often writers' conferences concentrate solely on the craft and business of writing books for publication.
They welcome proposals on any topic of interest to the writing community, but particularly encourage proposals on writing careers and writing-related businesses that introduce participants to the diverse opportunities available to them beyond creative writing as professional writers and writing service providers in addition to creative writing and publishing.
