The 16th annual Bay to Ocean Writers Conference, to be held on February 23, 2013 at Chesapeake College, has sold out in advance for the eighth consecutive year. The event’s popularity has increased, and with it, the ability to accommodate more writers. This year’s conference features thirty sessions and workshops for beginning, intermediate, and advanced writers and will host about 230 participants from the Chesapeake region and surrounding states. The conference is sponsored by the Eastern Shore Writers Association. For information on next year’s Bay to Ocean Writers Conference, visit www.baytoocean.com later in 2013.
