I spoke earlier about attending writer’s conferences. I believe they are an excellent way to meet editors, agents, other writers, and just plain network. Whether you’re attending a weekend conference or one that spans several days, be prepared. Make it count. You’re spending your money and your time so make attending one of these conferences worthwhile. Some tips on basic do’s and don’ts when attending such events can be found at the Fiction Writer’s Website. Research the one you plan to attend and enjoy yourself. You will reap great benefits and make lifelong friends as well.
