|thanks, On Writing Well for the pic!|
In light of this, I thought I'd send you to two posts about writer's conferences and why I think they are invaluable to your writing career.
Go here first.
Then jump on over to here.
And if you happen to a teen, don't be intimidated by Storymakers. There are always lots of teens there, but if you want to start a bit smaller, you should check out teenwritersconference.org. They do an amazing job for such a great price. They feed you too. There's also a con down at UVU. The name of it slips my mind, but I hear it is fab.
