The conference has been running since last week with intensives and other specialty workshops aimed at honing your craft. I wasn't able to attend any of those (Work? Who needs it? Oh, right. Me.), but I signed up for a pass that allows me access this Thursday-Sunday.
Tomorrow, I have a chat scheduled with Brooks Sherman of Fine Print Literary Management and then I'm hitting An Agent Reads the Slush Pile with Kristin Nelson of Nelson Literary Agency. This weekend has some great workshops and the event's first-ever book fair.
I'm nervous and excited all at once. My goal in attending is to make some local connections, meet other writers, and absorb as much as I can. I'm pretty green when it comes to publishing, so I feel a bit like this is the first day of school and I'm the new kid who doesn't know anyone. I just hope no one makes fun of my Hello Kitty lunch box!
I'll post pics and thoughts this weekend.
