The advisory committee for the Nora Roberts Writing Institute at Hagerstown Community College recently held a planning meeting at Dan’s Restaurant and Tap House in Boonsboro.

Best-selling author Nora Roberts welcomed the group at the beginning of the meeting.

The writing conference will be held Aug. 2 and 3 at HCC and will feature keynote speakers Sylvia Day, New York Times best-selling author, and critically acclaimed author Erica Bauermeister.

Roberts has lent her name to HCC’s writing institute to help provide participants with a solid foundation upon which to build a writing career.

From the fundamentals of setting up the story and plot to good research basics, the two-day retreat is designed for beginning and aspiring writers with interest in a wide range of genres.

Also included in the event is a young writers Institute, with breakout sessions designed for students entering grades 10 through 12.
