Care to promote your writing conference?





I'm a big fan of writing conferences. Sure, some meet our personal budget and current needs better than others, and not everyone you encounter leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy about your future potential, but if you go along with an open mind, the positives far outweigh any negatives.

The DFW Writer's Conference! http://dfwcon.org/

Met my agent there last year, and this year, they are letting me present. Thrills, chills, and industry-insider spills! (Now I just have to sell my book for some modest five-figure sum, so I can get in on all of this east-coast business...!)

It's not MY conference, but the Pikes Peak Writers run a really nice conference in Colorado Springs every April. Very well run conference with lots of editors and agents attending. There'a also a writing contest associated with it, but it might be too late to enter for this year.
