2013 Pennwriters Conference

May 21st, 2013

Hey folks,

I spent this past weekend in Pittsburgh at the annual Pennwriters Conference. For those who don’t know, I’ve been a member of Pennwriters for about ten years. When I first joined, I was an unpublished fledgling, and the organization was instrumental in my journey to professional publication.

The annual conference switches between Lancaster, PA and Pittsburgh each year, and this was the first time I’ve gone to the western event. And I’m so glad I did. I presented modules (lectures) about how to pitch to an agent/editor and how to revise your novel. Both were very well-received, so I guess my rampant stage-fright was not evident.

On top of presenting, I spent a lot of time just talking to my fellow members and re-connecting. Writing is a lonely business, and it really helps me to share my experiences (and fears) with other writers.

There are too many people to thank for my wonderful time at this year’s conference, but I can’t neglect to thank the hard-working conference¬†officers and volunteers.

I can’t wait till next year!
