WRITEONCON: Free Writer's Conference

Okay!  How many of you wish you could attend a National Writing Conference only to be depressed when you see the cost of said conference?  I know, me too!!

Six ingenious authors decided to hold a free writing conference on  August 10-12,2010 for all of us poor kidlit writers (MC:18 yrs or younger).  The best part is: MANY wonderful agents, editors, and authors are going to be presenting and critiquing.  It's going to be EPIC!!

To find out more about the WRITEONCON, go to http://www.writeoncon.com/!

Thanks Jamie Harrington, Elana Johnson, Casey McCormick, Shannon Whitney Messenger, and Lisa and Laura Roecker--along with the amazing Jennifer Stayrook (a goddess of all things web design)--for your BRILLANT IDEA!!!

We thank you!!


  1. How cool is this idea, Melissa? I'm so going to take part in WriteOnCon.

    I'm still looking forward to chatting with you in person at a Writer's Meetup; I attended this last weekend and we had a HUGE group!

    I'll be out of town for the next one, but should be able to make the July meetings.

  2. Hey EJ! I know, I'm stoked about WriteOnCon! I can't wait to meet you too! I am in Alabama for the summer so I won't be at another one until August. We definitely need to meet up! Are you going to the Writer's League of Texas Agents Conference in a few weeks?
