Writers's Conference

Looking for a writers' conference. I found this one too late to attend (already had plans), but it's not too late for you. It's The Mad Anthony Writers' Conference in Hamilton, OH., April 17-19.

It features Lee Lofland, award winning crime and mystery, 30 multi-genre workshops, publisher and agent appointments, manuscript critiques and a Writers Police Academy (how cool is that???)

Jane Friedman, Publisher and Editorial Director of Writer's Digest will be there. I recently attended a workshop led by Jane, and she was fantastic. I learned so much about platform-building, social networking and what turns an editor off. Plus, she is so approachable.

The early bird price has expired (sorry, for not posting sooner), but if you postmark by April 15th, it's still as bargain at $125.

This one is definitely going on my calendar for next year. If anyone has attended this conference, please let us know details.

Lee, Thanks for stopping by. I am soooo sad that I'm not going to be there. But it's on my list for next year.

Hope you have great attendance.

And the morgue...how awesome is that. My husband was a cop for 30 years and never let me go to the morgue (he probably wanted to send me there a couple of times.)

I'd love to see everyone there. It's going to be a wonderful conference. We're even taking the attendees on tours of the police department and the local morgue.

Mad Anthony - what a cool name for a Writers' conference.

Isn't it? That's what first struck me. Did you check out the conference? Sounds first rate!
