by Jodie Renner, editor, author, speaker @JodieRennerEd 

As I do a few times a year, I've compiled a list of writers’ conferences and book festivals in North America. This one runs from January through October 2016 so far. Where you see 2015 in bold, it means I've checked their website for 2016 dates and they're not published yet. I'll update them as I find out the dates for 2016. 
Please tell us about any conferences or book festivals I’ve missed by posting the info in the comments below, or email me at Info (at) JodieRenner (dot) com, and I’ll add them to the list. Please supply the date(s), the name of the conference, the location, and the website URL. Thanks a lot!
