Have you heard about WriteOnCon yet? This AWESOME, FREE conference founded by some truly great YA and MG writers who decided it was time for everyone to be able to attend writer's conferences!
WriteOnCon is an Online Children’s Writers Conference (rated MC-18, for Main Characters under 18 only) created by writers, for writers.
When: Tuesday – Thursday, August 10 – 12, 2010
Who: That’s the best part—it’s for EVERYONE!
Attendees won’t need to take time off work, travel, or spend a truckload of money. You can enjoy the conference from the convenience of your own home, for free—and the schedule has been designed around working hours. (Transcripts will also be available of the entire conference, should anyone have to miss part of it.) Everything will take place within the website, which means everyone with basic Internet access will be able to participate in all aspects of the conference—no additional software or technology required.
Keynote addresses, agent panels, and lectures will be presented as blogs, vlogs, moderated chats, webinars, podcasts, and livestreaming—check our amazing list of presenters to see who’s signed on (authors/illustrators, literary agents/editors). There will also be a critique forum, where participants can post query letters and first pages, to receive helpful feedback and comments from their peers and industry professionals. And, as if that weren’t exciting enough, there will also be daily contests, giving random winners everything from books to personalized critiques from agents.
WriteOnCon is everything great about a writer’s conference, without any of the cost or inconvenience. Click here to register now.
