I Can See With My Eyes Shut Tight was on Live In The D! ~ Click on the image to watch the segment on Youtube.com!

Conferences are one of the best ways to network with your writing peers. There’s the opportunity to meet authors who are further along on their writing journey, others who are just beginning the trip, and many, like me, who fall somewhere in between. Planning your day can be challenging especially if there are multiple presentations you’d like to see in the same time slot. Plan ahead, if you can. You could attend one session while your friend attends another. Otherwise, try to do a “notes swap” with another writer. Having too many good choices isn’t a bad thing. Remember that. Meeting editors, agents, and publishers is always a fun bonus. 

 No matter where you are on your writing adventure – there is something to be learned everywhere. Happy Writing!
