Fall Conference Mania

Posted by Heather on Aug 6, 2013 in WRITING TIPS |

typewriterA few weeks more and we’ll find ourselves winding down from our summer routines and gearing up for fall– a busy time in the publishing industry, a busy time for writers! I, for one, will be on a plane headed to Colorado to attend a conference. Is anyone else looking forward to a con? Let’s take a look at a few coming soon.


Slice Literary Writer’s Conference: This con takes place Sept 7-8th in Brooklyn, NY. Click HERE for more details.

New York Pitch Conference: This runs Sept 19th-22nd. Writers must apply and be selected to attend. For more information click HERE.

Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers: Denver, CO is the home of this excellent conference and runs Sept 20th-22nd. (I’ll actually be speaking here about forming and maintaining online critique groups.) This conference has a wonderful reputation and a highly competitive novel contest divided by genres. Winners will be announced at the Saturday night banquet. Click HERE for more details.

I’m dying to go to my first real writers’ conference—I just can’t seem to find any that don’t require a plane ride from Florida. I’ve heard such wonderful things about RMFO. Your session sounds fantastic! I hope you post some of your presentation online after, as I’m still searching for that “perfect” online critique group and would appreciate any tips. Have a wonderful time!

Kerry Ann, I’d be happy to chat with you about finding critique groups. Actually, I know a few women looking for partners…drop me an email if you like to discuss. :)
