ECCC Writers Block Presented By Penguin Random House

Writers Block


At ECCC, Writers Block is a good thing! Writers Block brings the world of literature to ECCC and is a haven for avid readers, writers and book lovers alike. Located on WSCC Level 6, this area features dozens of panels and signings with several of today’s best and brightest authors and publishers. Hear your favorites tell their stories, discuss their careers in publishing, and give advice on how to get rid of that pesky, other writer’s block.
