I attended my first Philadelphia Writers’ Conference last weekend and had a wonderful time. It was, as they say, money well spent. I am looking forward to next year’s event with enthusiasm.
There are a variety of workshops to attend, no matter your skill level or interest. The book fair located in the lobby was helpful in securing an author signature from any of the talented presenters. I had two books signed by Katherine Ramsland, who has worked with serial killers. (If you know me, you know I have a fascination with such things). You could also pitch your project to agents and editors, submit work for critique, or participate in a variety of contests.
It was a fun three days, even if a bit exhausting. I left on Sunday with a head crammed with ideas and a notebook scribbled with tips. The only thing left is to transfer everything onto my computer. Note to self—bring laptop the next time.
