WriteOnCon Starts Today! It's FREE!
WriteOnCon begins today. If you're a kidlit writer, editors, agents, and authors are lined up to help YOU!
From the WriteOnCon website:
WriteOnCon is a FREE Online Children’s Writers Conference (rated MC-18, for Main Characters under 18 only) created by writers, for writers. Attendees don’t need to take time off work, travel, or spend a truckload of money. They can enjoy the conference from the convenience of their own homes, for free—and the schedule is designed around working hours. (Transcripts are also available of the entire conference, should anyone have to miss part of it.) And everything for the conference takes place within this website, which means everyone with basic Internet access will be able to participate in all aspects of the conference—no additional software or technology required.
During the conference, keynote addresses, agent panels, and lectures are presented as blogs, vlogs, moderated chats, webinars, podcasts, and livestreaming. There is also a critique forum, where participants can post query letters and writing samples to receive helpful feedback and comments from their peers and industry professionals. And, as if that weren’t exciting enough, there are also daily contests, giving random winners everything from books to personalized critiques from agents.
Don't miss it. Hop on over. Registration is easy. Let the inspiration begin!
Oh, and by the way, my session "Does Your Picture Book Premise Have Power?" with a chance to win a PB critique is part of today's lineup!
