WriteOnCon 2011 starts today and goes through Thursday. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s a really great place to get gads of information all in one place. It’s great stuff presented by industry professionals that writers normally would have to know someone or have to jump through hoops to try to get.
Here is a link to this year’s offerings. http://writeoncon.com/2011/08/gearing-up-for-writeoncon-2011-%E2%80%93-the-full-schedule/
There are question and answer sessions with agents, chances to submit your pitches, queries, and parts of your manuscripts for agents to look at and give feedback on. (And if you are one of the lucky ones, they might ask you to submit something to them off-line)
There are also general topics of discussion. I can’t wait to see the one on writing the perfect opening line. I am so darn tired of writing my first page I can’t stand it!
What’s great about this, is if you are like me, and you can’t get off from work to participate in the live offerings during the day, the posts will still be there when you get home. So, even if you are not participating, you can still learn from the agents that are on-line. It’s a really great opportunity.
So, what are you still doing here reading this blog? Get on over there and learn a few things from some agents and GOOD LUCK with your querying!
