This year’s program has expanded to celebrate creators of all backgrounds and mediums, and explore topics across all writing disciplines.

Briles, a featured speaker, will discuss Texas-Sized Strategies for Author Success. Based on her best-selling book, How to Avoid Book Publishing Blunders, Bloopers, & Boo-Boos, Briles will have you scratching your head (why didn’t I do that?) to promising yourself that “tomorrow” I will start doing this ….and being inspired and motivated to reaching for the publishing stars with total confidence. Get ready to have some fun along as she shows you—anything is possible with the Texas-Sized 7 Strategies for Author Success.
