Writers’ conferences

I just returned from a three day marathon of pitching, networking and attending workshops at the Willamette Writers annual conference. The pitches were moderately successful even though I had to pitch from the seat of my pants because the agents that were taking what I was prepared to pitch were not available (I registered rather late). The workshops were great for the most part, but by the end of the third day my eyes had glazed over and I was moving like a zombie.

It’s definitely an experience I would reccomend to any aspiring writer.
