Why should I attend a writers conference?
Simply put, networking. It’s the number one reason to attend any conference dedicated to writers. You will meet and befriend so many people both publishing professionals and people new in their careers, that will pay dividends. We’ve often had people, simply by chance, meet someone who eventually makes a great impression on their career. You should also come to learn more about the business and the craft of writing. The publishing indutstry is in a constant state of flux with the democratization of publishing. We keep the information fresh and the topics new at the conference so you’re always on the bleeding edge.
What should I wear? Whatever you’re comfortable in. We’ve seen people in tuxedos and shorts. Business casual is a safe bet if you don’t want to rock the boat.
What should I bring? Something to take notes on. Good walking shoes. Change of clothes. There will be daytime and evening events. You can wear the same to both if you like. Do not bring a printed manuscript, unless directly requested.
What classes will be offered? Lots. We will post the education tracts soon.
