Bob Nelson, Cirque Writer’s Conference Director here.
Today, I am announcing that we will not be hosting a Cirque Writer’s Conference in 2018.
As we have come into January, I have been working to put a team together to work on the next event, which would have been in April. That effort has not gone well, and instead of running the risk of hosting an event that is less than what it should be for paying attendees, I have decided it is bet to not force a 2018 event and focus on building an engaged team for the future of the event.
To that end, I am looking for persons that that interested in engaging in creating a fantastic writer’s festival for the long term. I will post additional details of what that entails on the website, as well as a timeline for development and planning for the next Cirque du Livre.
