2013 NSNC Conference: Lifestyles and the Writing Life

The National Society of Newspaper Columnists (NSNC) will hold its annual Conference in Hartford, CT, June 27 - 30, 2013 at the Hartford Hilton. Registration is now open, as is the annual writing contest. Click here for details: 2013 NSNC Conference

The entire NSNC Board of Directors nominated a Program Committee and has worked diligently, since the untimely death of its president, Larry Cohen, and a few other mishaps, to pull this exciting conference together. Many impressive headliners will be there, including Dave Barry, who is being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award; original SNL writer, Thurber Prize winner and co-author of Lunatics, Alan Zweibel; popular public speaker and author of a hilarious new book It's Not That I’m Bitter, Gina Barreca; and many others.

There are still sponsorship opportunities open! If you are interested, please contact the NSNC Executive Director ( The publicity will be amazing.

Who can register?
The NSNC says "If you’re reading this, you are. Whether you write for newspapers, magazines, newsletters, trade journals or other periodicals or for radio or video … whether you’re on staff, a freelancer, syndicated, self-syndicated or independent. We heartily encourage online and multimedia columnists, bloggers and similar Web reporters, commentators, analysts, humorists and essayists. We welcome retired or former columnists, journalism scholars and collegian columnists. And all those who want to write columns or blogs… And your guests!”
