2015 Florida Heritage Book Festival & Writers Conference

Writers and Readers — Get your creative juices flowing! Sep 15 - 17, 2016.

The Writers Conference offers a mix of creativity and practical advice for making it as a writer. Sharpen your skills with expanded workshops taught by the pros covering both the craft of writing and the marketing and business of writing.

The Book Festival is for readers and writers alike, offering a chance to meet and mingle with popular authors in all genres. Among this year's scheduled authors are Lisa Black, Scott Eyman, John Dfresne, Mary Kay Andrews, Connie Mae Fowler, Jon Jefferson, and many more. Visit us at for a complete listing.

The Literary Legends Banquet last year honored John Jakes, a true American Literary Legend. This year we'll bestow the Literary Legends Award to the "father of the medical thriller," Robin Cook, and honor one of the past masters of the crime novel, John D. MacDonald. Past recipients have included Edna Buchanan, Michael Connelly, Carl Hiassen, Patrick Smith and many more.
