The event starts Friday evening and goes through Sunday afternoon. There will be over thirty writers, agents, and editors presenting on three tracks covering fiction, nonfiction, and the business side of writing. Agents and editors will be on hand for pitch sessions.
I submitted a short story in the fictional category to their writing contest. We find out the results Friday evening. I also will be submitting the first page of my current WIP. On Saturday the First Page Panel, made up of David Morrell, Marcy Posner and Regina Brooks, will critique our works.
I'm still hoping to make a connection with an agent or publisher. I've been working at being an indie author for about eight years now. So far, it hasn't worked out very well. Even though I hire editors, formaters, and cover artists, it doesn't seem to matter.
I'll let you know how it goes. Keep your fingers crossed.
