Writing Conferences

I have never been to a writing conference and want to go to one so badly.  I would love to be able to pitch my book in front of an agent or publisher and see what their facial expression is in reguards to it. 

I was searching for some Writing conferences this weekend and found one that is right down my alley.  The 19th Annual ANWA Writers Conference.  It is an LDS (Latter Day Saint) conference and with my book being in that arena I feel this would be perfect for me! 

The only problem is that the conference is in Arizona and I live in Alabama (will be living in Kentucky in Feb. when the conference is being held).  What an opportunity to it would be for me to be able to go and just be in the thick of all that is writing.  I guess I will have to see how it pans out and if I can make my dreams a reality.

Any writers out there been to a conference?  Are they really as completely awesome as I am imaging them?

You are going to love conerences! I call them my normal place. It's where I suddenly fit in with the people around me. AND if I start staring off into space imagining a scene, I'm not the only one. :)

Hi Deana -
Thanks so much for visiting and following Television Nirvana.

I have never been to a writers' conference but I would love it. I hope you make it to the KY conference and write about it on your blog (newest follower, BTW!)

Also, CONGRATS on finishing your book! What an accomplishment! I have been writing since I was 8 but have yet to finish a book completely. You are inspiring!

Congratulations on finishing the book, and best of luck! It's scary having your work critiqued - and I've only done so in University classes, I can't imagine presenting something to a publisher! Have fun with it!!!

I am following from the one of the blog hops! Would love for you to stop by and say hello some time :) Be sure to check out my Giveaway for an EcoMom giftcard! Have a wonderful weekend!
