ABOUT THE CLASS:

Going to a writer’s conference – whether your first or your fortieth – is a huge commitment of your resources, especially time and money. Knowing what to expect and preparing for it properly will help you reap the most rewards. In this class, students will hear a variety of opinions on how best to prepare for a writer’s conference from people who have done it well and those who learned from their mistakes. Learn about the CHARACTERS (agents, editors, other writers), the SETTING (what you should bring), the PLOT (workshops, meetings, meals), and more.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

OCC RWA member Kitty Bucholtz has taught classes at writer’s conferences around the country. She has compiled information from her own experience as well as that of other published and unpublished writers to give students the broadest range of information. Even though she loves talking about, writing about, and teaching about writing, she’s pretty sure she knows at least three people who aren’t writers. Her monthly column, “It’s Worth It,” is posted on the 9th of every month at http://occsliceoforange.blogspot.com/
