Michelle Johnson, 2012 SCWW Conference faculty member and agent with Corvisiero Literary Agency, organized and executed an on-line auction to benefit SCWW. Bidding ended on January 18 and proceeds netted the organization $1,588.00. That amount is specifically earmarked to defray the 2012 conference deficit.
All the agents at Corvisiero Literary Agency and some of their friends gathered resources in an effort to help out the South Carolina Writers’ Workshop Conference. Michelle says the pool of talent at our October conference was amazing, and she felt a sense of community and enthusiasm from these folks that blew her away. She has since signed two authors that pitched their projects in Myrtle Beach.
The SCWW Board of Directors, on behalf of the organization, extends its gratitude to Michelle and her team for devising this wonderful way to raise money so that SCWW may continue nurturing writers and their dreams. We also thank those of you who opened your wallets to support us in this way and made this event a success.
If you missed participating in this auction, there will be another, hosted by SCWW, to whet the appetite of writers, television-drama and soap-opera fans. Curious? All will be revealed in the coming months. Stay tuned and get the scoop.
