ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - You might have made writing more one of your goals in the new year. There’s an event this weekend hoping to inspire writers to tackle a new project or hone in on an idea.

Here to tell us all about the Roanoke Regional Writers Conference is Liz Long.

RRWC23 takes place on January 20-21, 2023, at Hollins University in Roanoke. The cost of the conference is $70 ($25 for students and faculty), including brunch in the dining hall on Saturday.
