Returned home today from an amazing conference in Seattle, Pacific Northwest Writer’s Conference – www.pnwa.org
All of has had a non-stop experience of networking, learning, and enjoying everything from top-notch speaker and author of House and Sand and Fog, Andre Dubus ( a must read) to the awards dinner Saturday evening. I particularly enjoyed seeing so many familiar faces, agents, writers and editors from Penguin Publishing in NY.
My class, Crafting Fiction That Sells in Today’s Marketplace – An Agent’s POV, drew over 100 students and was an interactive learning experience and entertaining session. I particularly enjoyed hearing writer’s first lines of their novels and one line pitches…some were very clever.
It is always sad to say good-bye, but returning to Whidbey Island for some R&R before I leave in 10 days for Portland and the next writer’s conference, was a perfect.
Hope to see some of you at Just Write on the Pier this week in Coupeville at Local Grown Coffee House.
