The morning after the Royal Palm Literary Award Banquet, and a crowd remains at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs. Why? Throughout the conference, the Florida Writers Association (FWA) and the Florida Writers Foundation (FWF) give door prizes. In the forefront, writer Jennifer Walsh Hawks stands next to the basket of books provided by the Daytona Writers Guild. Inside the basket is a one-year membership to the guild. I’m looking forward to Jennifer joining us. In the background, conference attendees hoping to win the coveted door prize–a free conference next year. Next post I’ll reveal the Florida Writer for the 2020 conference and the National Writer of the Year for the 2020 conference.
