PNWA Conference - Here I come


I am heading to Bellevue, Washington to the Pacific Northwest Writer's Association conference today. It is about a six hour trip.

This is the third time I've been to this conference. At the 2010 conference I met my now-editor, Peter, from Sourcebooks, Inc. So, I have a good feeling about the conference. This year, however, in looking at all of the course offerings, I realize that I have had a crash course in most of what is being taught. Getting a book published will do that. Still, one can always learn, right? And I will meet lots and lots of writers/authors. Connect, connect, connect...that's the name of the game.

So -- I'm on my way to Bellevue (near Seattle). I hope to blog about it, internet willing. ~Karen

Have fun! I'm looking for a writers' conference to attend this fall. It's been years since I went to one.

Wouldn't that be great, Linda? I love the idea of writers who met online meeting in person someday! Who's with me?

I highly recommend it, Melissa. I would be all alone with my writerly dreams if I hadn't starting attending conferences. Agents and Editors are just regular people, like writers are. And a conference gives you the opportunity to not only tell about your book, but actually have a face-to-face with people. I love that.
