Writer’s Conferences in NYC and Surrey BC

A flower to dress up the post

Happy Summer to you all.

Many writer friends are in New York at the RWA National Convention, and those of us left behind are rooting for the best conference ever for them. They are keeping in touch with smart phones and the internet, sharing as they sight see and await the opening.  RWA has over 10,000 members in the US and world wide, and the national conference hums with the best teachers, prestigious contest winners to be announced, awards, editors and agents, signed books to buy, but most of all, over 2000 author/writer attendees.

In October, I look forward to the Surrey International Writer’s Conference held in Surrey BC, near Vancouver.  This conference caters to all writers, and all genres, including poetry and children’s writing.  Did I overdo it by  signing up for three of the nine 3 hour long master classes offered on Thursday?  I may have to give one away to my daughter who will be joining me from Texas.  (Now that’s a heart thump!)

Donald Maass: Mastering the three levels of story to construct a gripping novel
Robert Dugoni:  Playing God – Creating Memorable Characters
Kathleen Ortiz: Sell Your Book: Online Marketing and Promotion

In addition to those great offerings, the selection of workshops makes choice a challenge, but I also look forward to an agent appointment, and having an established author read and comment on the first three pages of my manuscript.

Now back to writing …
