Let the party begin. The writerly nerd party that is. WriteOnCon is Aug 14 & 15 this year and I will be participating as a newbie. I've heard a lot about this online conference from friends in the writing community and am really looking forward to it.
WriteOnCon has everything from contests to forums complete with ninja agents. Anyone looking to participate or lurk can find the forums here.
Be sure to scour the query and first 250 word forums and leave comments to encourage those writers who are getting started. I love reading query letters for ideas on structure. And nothing is better than reading a well crafted log line.
Get out there and Con. See you in the forums!
