I’m slightly straying from my blogging schedule, but I feel it’s completely worth it.
What is WriteOnCon?
WriteOnCon is a three-day online children’s book conference for writers and illustrators of picture books, middle grade, young adult, and even new adult. It was founded in 2010 and is now run by a new team of writers who are eager to hearken back to the awesomeness that they remember so fondly from being attendees over the years, while also bringing exciting new elements to the mix.
WriteOnCon features blogs, vlogs, pitch sessions, Q&As, critique forums, and more — there’s something for every writer/illustrator, in every stage of their career. From the comfort of your home, a library, a coffee shop — any place with an internet connection — you can meet agents and editors, connect with potential critique partners, and generally soak up a whole bunch of knowledge!
This is happening in less than a week. February 9th-11th. If you haven’t attended this online writing conference before, now would be a great time to do so. Not only is it an incredibly affordable conference, but the wealth of knowledge shared here is priceless. All the live events are transcribed, so if you miss one, you can always view them later. So go ahead and follow the link to check out the awesomeness!
