Choosing A Conference


With the new year comes new writing conference opportunity s. If you’re serious about writing you should really try to attend a conference once a year. HOWEVER, make sure it is a conference that will gel with your current writing level. Don’t sign up for a pitch conference if you’re just beginning to write, and if you’ve been writing forever, don’t waste your time on a conference for beginners. Research your conference options before spending your money. Find out who will be there. Find out if those attending, teaching or hearing pitches are those who work in your genre.

Here are a few entities offering conferences on a regular basis:

Writer’s Digest

Algonkian Conferences

Romance Writers of America

Las Vegas Writer’s Conference

These are a few of many. Go! Check things out! Research and investigate! 

About Katie Thayne, Author

Katie Thayne (that's me, kind of, seeing as how Katie Thayne is a pen name) is an up and coming author (or so I'd like to think). I have just released my first book, Ms. Impractical Pants, and am currently working on its sequel. I don't have a name for that one yet, so let's just call it Sequel for now. If I'm not working on Sequel, I'm scratching down ideas for the other half dozen or so book ideas swirling around in my brain. Okay, that's a lie, I don't write them down as much as I should, but I still think them, so that should count for something, right? I live in beautiful Moab, Utah and when I'm not writing- on second thought, I won't go there. Let's pretend I sit in a quite office hunched over a keyboard and do nothing but write. The most important thing to know about me, is just because I write doesn't mean I can punctuate. That's why I have an editor- but not for this blogging stuff. Editors ain't cheap and I'm not J.K. Rowling...yet. But I hope that won't keep you from reading my blog.
