The best training you’ll ever receive is that which you’ll get by attending writers conferences. Next to your local critique group, writers workshops and conferences will give you the knowledge you need to become a better writer. The various workshops offered usually take you from A to Z concerning the writing/publishing business with fresh ideas for you to try.
You also make new long-lasting writer friends, kindred spirits who think just like you do. (They don’t call us “Odd Ducks” for nothing.)
Writers conferences also offer you the opportunity to present your work face to face to agents and editors of publishing companie. I’ve acquired four of my five book contracts by meeting editors at the Montrose Christian Writers Conference held in Montrose, PA, every July.
Speaking of conferences, why don’t you check out our Susquehanna Valley Writers Workshop on Saturday, October 9th at the Best Western Country Cupboard Inn in Lewisburg, PA?
We have a great faculty lined up representing the following genres:
Magazine articles and non-fiction books
Kids fiction stories
Humorous articles for newspapers and magazines
Please contact me at my website (listed below), and I’ll send you a brochure to get you started on your latest writing adventure.
If you’ve never been to a writers’ conference, you don’t know what you’re missing!
