Great Conference for Writers

In this economy, times are tough, especially for writers. Many of us want to improve our writing and learn more about the business, so we check out books, subscribe to magazines and we get connected to writing critique groups, but growing your skill as a writer often involves attending conferences and workshops that are oftentimes costly. At least that's what I thought.

Three years ago, I met a writing friend online and she introduced me to the Oklahoma Writer's Conference sponsored by the Oklahoma Writer's Federation. She invited me to attend, and I didn't know what to expect. It turns out that it was one of the best investments I could've done for my writing business. It was inexpensive, learned so much, and networked with other writers, agents, editors, and publishers. This conference is open to writers of all genres. Here's is a small list of what sessions they offered for 2010:

Magazine, Editors, Agents panel
How to use blogging
The Entrepenurial Author
Everything about publishing
Getting known before the book deal
Succed when print is declining

To see the full list, go here:

The whole three-day conference this year was under $200 and they provided two banquet meals. So, if you've set goals to grow as a writer, attending a writing conference is an excellent way to start. Think about coming to the Oklahoma Writer's Conference next year and take that first next step to getting yourself in print. All my best, JAX
