SF Writers Conference Done

The San Francisco Writers Conference for 2012 is done and it was four days of well invested time towards developing my writing career. Tanya Egan Gibson, Author of How to Buy a Love of Reading, and I once again led a workshop on Writing Groups and Critique. (If you haven’t read Tanya’s book – Get it! How to Buy a Love of Reading is a page turner, can’t put down read.) This year’s conference was even more exciting for me as No Red Pen – Writers, Writing Groups & Critique was published as e-book and in print and I received the advance copies Friday at the conference. Everyone that attended the workshop received a free advance copy. For those that missed the conference (see you next year), until March 15, 2012, you can download a free copy of No Red Pen – Writers, Writing Groups and Critique via smashwords using the coupon KL78N. Find copies where ever e-books are sold.

Once again, the poets rocked the house with several well attended small workshops, a great reading by the faculty with music, and late into the night open mike. This is an after-hours event that is absolutely the place to be on Saturday night of the conference.

Following the conference, I attended the San Francisco Writers University sponsored Self Publishing Bootcamp with industry leaders Carla King, Brian Felsen, Joel Friedlander, and Dean of SF Writers U,  Laurie McLean. A well spent day! Wish I’d taken the class before I embarked on the self-publishing trail.

Now the hard work of post conference recovery, follow up on all those contacts, and use that renewed energy the conference always creates to boost productivity. There are submissions to get sent out!

  1. Always interesting to read your interviews Vicki and Jerome’s was particularly cool…I liked getting to know him during Pulitzer Remix, but getting to know him even better here was a bonus. Thanks to you both.
