I got super lucky and was able to attend a SCBWI writing conference in my little hometown. It was so much fun!! I learned a lot. It was nearly 24 hours all about writing. And I got a few of my books signed. Couldn't have been better! It was one of those conferences where every single class I learned something. Every single one got me thinking and rethinking. I am so glad that I went. Guys seriously if you want to be a writer. make going to conferences a thing! It might cost a little bit but it is so worth it!!!
Top 5 reasons Writing conferences are a good thing!
1. There is always something to learn about writing and publishing
2. Meeting others who have done it not only gives you a good positive vibe but they can also chat with you about your situation and hopefully have some good advice.
3. Writers need writer friends.
4. Often there is a book signing. So you can purchase books and get them signed by the amazing presenters
5.Boosts creativity and motivation
