Participating in writing conferences is a great opportunity to move forward as writers
Writing conferences offer many benefits. They provide education, encouragement, networking, and making friends. At conferences we can learn about writing, the industry, and promotion. We can meet editors, publishers, and agents. We forge friendships. And we have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in a writing community.
I have a goal to attend two writing conferences each year. This year I went to three:
- Festival of Faith and Writing (meets every other year)
- Taylor University’s Professional Writing Conference
- Breathe Christian Writers Conference
It’s not too early to begin planning which conferences to attend next year, so for this month please help us out and share which writing conferences you attend or recommend.
