What kind of writing conferences will you be attending this year?

There are so many good writing conferences out there throughout the year. January is when I start making my list of the ones I want to go to and the ones I HAVE to go to - there is a difference.

This year, I've been invited to seven conferences around the country. I don't think I'll be able to go to all of them, but several are near and dear to my heart and others will help me with the business of writing and selling what I write. Attending conferences is a great way to network, meet production companies, agents and editors and get in on pitch sessions, where you can pitch your story to your dream editor/agent or production company. Some of my conferences this year will be for novels, and some for scripts.

Where do you want to go? Questions welcome :)

  2. That is a great list! The only conference I'm attending this year, though, is my local RWA chapter retreat.

  3. If you have any questions about the cons, I can probably answer them :)
