My Adventures in Edmonton, Canada—at the Writing in 3D Conference

This past weekend, I got the exciting chance to speak in Edmonton, Canada at the 2013 Words in 3D Conference. The event—which had a turnout of more than 300 attendees (wow!)—was organized by the Get Publishing Communications Society, the Writers’ Guild of Alberta, and the Editors’ Association of Canada (Prairie Provinces Branch). The conference was wonderful and I got to meet a lot of great people. It was an unusual and unique chance to get so far north to teach (it got dark there at 10:20 p.m.), and I would recommend the event to any in Alberta or nearby in future years.

I got to speak on getting a literary agent, getting magazine articles published, and more. The conference gave me a chance to teach, sign books, and also informally chat with writers about whatever was on their mind. Pretty nice.

This is a good shot at the whole crowd. Because the Words in 3D Conference covered so many topics, the turnout was massive — 300 people at least.
