Writer's conferences are great places to network with other writers, get a chance to talk with editors and agents, and meet successful authors.
Next week I'm headed to the 2008 Book Expo America Writer's Digest Books Writers Conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The conference is on Wednesday (May 28). It runs all-day (including lunch), with workshops and panels throughout the morning and afternoon. The day concludes with a unique 2-hour pitch slam session, featuring the largest gathering of agents and editors of any conference.

There's still time to sign up, and I highly recommend this conference if you can make it. The Pitch Slam is a great opportunity to get your book in front of an agent and land a book deal.
I'm planning on posting coverage from the conference and from the subsequent book expo, so keep checking the blog for news.
Until then, I hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend.
