The James River Writers Conference attracts award-winning authors and highly regarded editors and agents from around the country to share their wisdom about the craft and business of writing and publishing.

David Coogan is an associate professor of English at VCU and the co-author of “Writing Our Way Out: Memoirs from Jail”, the creative culmination of a writing class in which ten men explore the conditions, traps, and turning points on their paths to imprisonment as well as the redemptive power of memoir.
