A Resource To Help You Prepare For Writers Conferences


Every year, I get butterflies in September. No, not the kind that come from a cocoon, but the kind that leaves your stomach begging for mercy.

What’s the problem? Conference jitters. Whether you have been to a conference before, or are attending for the first time this year, there are always things you are afraid you will get wrong.

Just because I know how to pitch, doesn’t mean that I won’t get nervous. Just because I got invitations to send my work last year, doesn’t mean I will again this year. The list goes on and on.

So, how do you get that conference edge? Advice from those who have gone before you. I’m delighted to announce that as part of the My Book Therapy Staff, I had the privilege to collaborate in writing a book about this very thing.

Yesterday was the launch day for our brand new book:

Quick Overview

Learn how to choose, prepare for and attend a writers conference successfully. Weather you are a conference pro or newbie, this is a helpful resource for you.

These next few weeks on my blog we will be focusing on Conference Prep Topics to help you get ready.

*Next Monday, Author Beth K. Vogt will be doing a video blog pitch to help you learn how to pitch at a conference.

Now is your chance to tell me what conference topics you want to know more about.

Leave a comment about what you’d like to learn about writing conferences in the comments below. I will pick some topics from your comments to discuss.
