If you’re not already devouring every bit of information on the first annual Write On Con online conference, head over there and start browsing (after you’ve finished reading this post, of course.)
Write On Con is a fabulous idea, and I was excited about it when they first announced the event. I love going to writer conferences. You can get so much inspiration out them. But they can be expensive and it can be very difficult to get away.
With Write On Con, you don’t have the benefit of networking face to face with other writers, agents and editors. But, the WOC organizers has done a great job of getting wonderful speakers to dish about interesting subjects. And the dishing is both through videos and text. Best of all it’s free.
And you can still network, through leaving comments on pages and through live chats with speakers.
Here are my favorite seminars so far:
Refining Your Craft With Each Book by author Janette Rallison
Bringing the Funny by author Rachel Hawkins
Give Yourself Permission by editor Molly O’Neill
and, of course, author Josh Berk’s awesome keynote.
It can be a bit difficult to find older items from the home page, so here’s a hint: Head straight to the Write On Con schedule then click on what looks good to you.
Write On … Write On Con!
