I spent about an hour this morning organizing both my calendar and my computer for the upcoming Muse Online Conference (which is closed to registration now). http://themuseonlinewritersconference.com Though the website is atrocious, the conference itself is bursting with information in the form of chat presentations and forum posting. Plenty of hand-outs as well.
This will be my fourth year attending, and I plan to focus more on networking and forming connections to the small publishing houses and agents that attend as well as other writers. Most of the presentations are the same as the previous years, so I am not expecting a glut of brand new information. As far as fiction writing, platforms and marketing go, I think I’m rather knowledgeable already.
The conference is exciting, however, and meeting up with over a thousand other writers means good conversations critiques and sharing of ideas. That’s always good.
