DO YOU NEED A CONFERENCE?

Are you going to a conference this year?
Do you think you need one?
Can you afford it?
What can you take away from it?

Conferences offer so many opportunities for writers.
You can network by meeting all sorts of new people.
At some you can meet with agents, editors, mentors, best-selling authors.
At others, you might spend one-tenth or one-fifth the amount of money
and attend some of the same classes offered by the larger conferences.

If the budget allows, do your best to attend a conference this year.
Maybe a one-day conference where local people get together and have
a free-will offering for a good speaker.

Don't miss the chance to learn from others.

Going to a conference this year? Ooooh, I hope so...

  1. I am playing with the idea of going to one in Montrose PA-- I have the free airfare, a place to stay, now need to come up with the cost.
    There is an agent there I want to pitch to so it is really tempting:)

  2. Ooh, take the opportunity to go if you have to sell your . . . home made fudge. Hehe, it is such an amazing opportunity to meet with like-minded people. Oh, I'll pray you can go!

  4. I keep telling myself once I graduate from college I'll go to a conference, but I'm not sure I can wait.
