Conference Spotlight: 2009 Reno Writers’ Conference

In two months, I’ll be off to Reno, NV, to present at the 2009 Reno Writers Conference at Truckee Meadows Community College. I first heard good things about this conference from agent Andrea Hurst, who runs her own agency in nearby Sacramento.

A little about the conference:

The whole shebang goes down from 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., Saturday, March 14, 2009, at TMCC’s Dandini Campus. If you’re coming from out of town, a good place to stay in proximity to the event is the John Ascuaga Nugget Casino Resort

At least two literary agents will be in attendance: Verna Dreisbach of Dreisbach Literary, and Amberly Finarelli of Andrea Hurst’s agency.  In addition, there will be authors, editors (like me), book designers and more to give talks. The agents will be taking pitches, and my first speech of the day will take writers through how to sit down and pitch agents face to face.

The conference seems pretty intimate, and I mean that in a good way. It’s short and sweet—one day packed with stuff. Attendees get the chance to meet with me or agents if they wish.  Plenty of topics—including fiction work, freelancing, self-publishing and self-editing—are addressed. We’ll all be sitting at lunch together, chatting, probably eating something scrumptious.
