I went to the writer's conference in Edmonds, Washington this weekend. Write on the Sound sponsored by the Edmonds Arts Commission was outstanding. Each presenter was amazing. I learned so much and am grateful that I had the opportunity to attend. I only wish I could have heard all the speakers and attended all the workshops during the weekend.
The organizers of this writer's conference did an outstanding job. Everyone was taken care of and they did a great job of anticipating needs of those who attended the conference. So much thought and planning went into this event. It was flawless and they should be congratulated! I want to attend next year and I look forward to it with great eagerness to learn and grow.
These are the workshops I attended:
On Saturday I went to:
HOW TO WRITE A SHORT BOOK FAST by Nina Amir
STEPS--A BAKER'S DOZEN TO FIND AN AGENT OR PUBLISHER by Alice B. Acheson
