In the beginning...
South Bay Writers presented the first East of Eden Writers Conference in 2002. We didn't know if it would be a success. We didn't know if anyone would come. It was a gamble that paid off. From that first conference, each EoE, as we now call it, has been a wonderful success. In 2006, Jean Auel, our special guest and keynote speaker, told us it was the best writers conference she'd ever been to, and so did many others.
The 2010 would have been our fifth, but with great regret, due to adverse external events, we had to cancel it. We hope to be able to resume the conference in the future.
