San Francisco Writing for Change

by Barbara Santos

John Robbins (Healthy at 100, Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution) and Dan Millman of the ever popular Peaceful Warrior books will be the keynoters when the 2010 San Francisco Writing for Change conference returns this November 13 and 14.

This will be John Robbins first appearance at the SFW4C Conference. Robbins wrote the groundbreaking and Pulitzer Prize nominated book, Diet for a New America, exposing connections between diet, physical health, animal cruelty, and environmentalism. Robbins’ first book really did change the world when he founded EarthSave, an international, non-profit organization which came out of the reader response to his Diet for a New America. The son of the Baskin-Robbins co-founder, John has been awarded the Rachel Carson Award, the Albert Schweitzer Humanitarian Award, and the Peace Abbey’s Courage of Conscience Award.

As previously announced, Dan Millman, a longtime friend of San Francisco Writers Conference and San Francisco Writing for Change Conference, will also be a keynote speaker. In addition to Way of the Peaceful Warrior and a dozen other spiritual books for adults, he’s also written children’s books. His keynote promises to be full of inspiration and motivation for writers who want to bring positive change to the world.

There will be many other publishing experts at this year’s SFW4C. A highlight will be a panel session featuring the trio that made the bestseller 29 Gifts a reality ─ author Cami Walker, her agent whom she met at the 2008 SFW4C, Rita Rosenkranz, and executive editor Katie McHugh of Da Capo Press. They can all tell you San Francisco Writing for Change conference really helps to get a good writer published!

The theme of this conference is “Changing the World One Book at a Time” and there is no reason one of those books can’t be yours! So get ready to be published. As always, attendees will have the chance to pitch their book to agents and editors, and to get feedback on their work from freelance editors at the SFW4C. This event is limited to 150 attendees.
