Hey, if you don’t already know about this, there is a free annual conference just for children’s writers. This the third year it’s happening, and there is a lot you can get from it.
It’s called Write On Con (short for Conference.)
First of all, you have the chance to network and talk (as in post in forums) with agents, publishers, writers, illustrators, and wannabes.
You have the chance to win prizes. I won a free class and learned how to make book trailer videos!
You can post excerpts of your work for critique.
You can query agents and publishers.
You can hang out with like-minded others who share your love of writing and children’s books.
Best of all, it’s free. You can attend live forum events, or just visit whenever you have the time. The forums are already open for you to introduce yourselves and post.
The official Write On Con conference is for two days, Tuesday–Wednesday, August 14–15, 2012. If you miss it this year, be prepared for it next year. Be sure to sign up for their newsletter, so you get a reminder notice in your email.
