Around 2,000 writers, agents, editors and other professionals in publishing will gather in San Francisco to attend or give workshops, network, and socialize during the Romance Writer's of America conference. Unpublished writers get the opportunity to pitch their stories to editors and agents with the hope they'll one day see their words in print. The grand finale is the Rita and Golden Heart Awards Night, RWA's version of the Oscars. The conference is an exciting, hectic, informative, and exhausting few days.
The morning before the conference officially opens Faith, Hope & Love, a special interest chapter of RWA, hosts a mini-conference for inspirational writers and professionals that ends with a wonderful time of worship, fueling our spirit for the days ahead.
I'll participate in giving a workshop entitled: First Year on the Job: From "THE CALL" to Publication. I'll attend my publisher's party, a gala event, and see my editor at lunch and other functions. Best of all, I'll hook up with writer friends I've met at prior conferences and only see once a year/ Those friends are one of the many blessings of being a writer.
Whatever your dream, grab the opportunities like this conference to bring it to fruition.
