To writers everywhere -- I LOVE WriteOnCon!!!
It's a super wonderful conference just for children's literature including: picture books, middle grade, young adult, and new adult!
Here's a quick list of the fabulousness I enjoy:
- I meet new writers!
- There are critique forums for query letters, 1st 250 words, and 1st 5 pages.
- I found one of my super critique partners there in 2011! She's brilliant. I met her through the critique forums, but if that doesn't work, there's a CP match maker forum too!
- It's FREE!! YES, FREE!
- They post the days events online so I don't miss anything! That means, if I have to be out of the house, I can check in at night and still be a part of the awesome.
- Archives from 2010+ are also posted. So I can benefit from the coolness of past years! YAY!
- Tons of agents browse the forums and can request my ms!! Double YAY!
- I can submit my pitch for agents to see! Yes, yes, I can!
Another great thing about WriteOnCon: It's open to everyone! So if you live in Australia, England, Taiwan, or Canada, you can attend!
Besides all this, amazing authors contribute their advice and share their knowledge. I mean, wow, right?!?
So come on and join the fun!! Critiques are happening NOW! You can get everything polished up before the agents come perusing.
