So … you want to be a writer? Where do you start? How do you get there? No worries. This month I’ll be sharing my A to Z list of writer’s resources: books, blogs, and beyond! Check back each day to find helpful resources for improving your writing and navigating your way through the publishing industry.
C is for Conferences
Writers' conferences are a huge resource for information, networking, and pitching. Agents, editors, publishers, and fellow writers attend these conferences to teach and learn from each other. The first conference you attend is likely to be quite overwhelming (it was for me), but I also learned a lot, got my hopes up a lot, and made friends a lot. Chances are, there's a great local conference near you.
Simply go to Google, type in your state, writer conference, and see what pops up on your screen.
