Pennwriters Conference 2010

May 16th, 2010

This year’s annual conference was held at the beautiful Best Western Eden Resort in Lancaster, PA. I’ve got to say upfront that I think this conference gets better every year. Big kudos to Ayleen Stellhorn, this year’s conference organizer.

As before, the conference offered a program of workshops and seminars about writing, marketing, publishing, and such. I was able to attend a few of these and found them all excellent. I was also able to volunteer more this time around than in previous years, and I really enjoyed that.

But the best part was reconnecting with people I hadn’t seen since my last PW conference (in 2008). I was given some awesome marketing advice from NYT-bestselling author Maria Snyder (I also snagged an autographed copy of Storm Glass). And I had a wonderful conversion with agent Jennifer Jackson (of The Donald Maass Literary Agency) in the hotel lobby. Pennwriters does a lot of things right with their conferences; getting top-flight agents and editors to attend is one of them.

So now that the conference is ended, I’m left feeling a little sad that it’s over, but I’m also energized to dive back into my work-in-progress.

Thank you to all my fellow Pennwriters.

2010 Pennwriters Conference

February 16th, 2010

Hey folks,

Today’s post is about a local writers’ conference here in central PA. It’s hosted by the Pennwriters group, an organization to which I’ve belonged for a number of years. I don’t work for Pennwriters, but I feel that belonging to a group like this can provide many benefits for a writer at any stage of their career.

The Pennwriters cialis conference is an annual event. This year it’s being held May 14-16 in Lancaster, PA. The conference features workshops (in many genres), discussion panels, a banquet, a costume party, and pitch sessions with editors and agents who are actively seeking new authors. This year’s keynote speaker is author James Rollins.
