It's the beginning of conference number three for All Write Now! and the committee cannot WAIT to show you what we have in store. So here are some of the awesome updates and changes we've made for this year's conference:
1. You wanted variety, we have it: Some conferences specialize in one genre. That's fine. We want to offer as much variety as possible. This year we have THREE New York agents, four published authors, including one highly successful self-published author. Our agents span the gammut from westerns to poetry to non-fiction to YA and beyond. Click on the FACULTY page, click on their pictures, and you'll find a direct link to their web pages.
2. You wanted more feedback? You got it! This year we have the option of multiple pitch sessions, one-on-one critique sessions AND a slush pile session. (Oh, dear. I don't have that one on the website, yet. Note to self....) Be sure to click on the EVENTS page to sign up for your pitch sessions and critique sessions (and soon the slush pile. It is NOT to be missed!)
3. You asked for lunch to be more organized. This year we have a buffet! You can make your own sandwich the way you like (with or without bread, meat, etc.). We will also have snacks throughout the day so no one will suffer from mid-morning or mid-afternoon munchies.
4. We now are offering color sponsor ads! If you are looking to expand your business, and/or if you know someone who wants to expand their business, check out the awesome prices for our conference booklet on the SPONSOR page. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact our new marketing chair Penny DeYong at email@example.com.
5. You wanted a block of hotel rooms at a decent rate? We have you covered. Check out the HOTEL link for all the information you need.
6. Early bird registration: If you register on or before April 30, you get a significant discount on your registration. I'd suggest you go do it once you finish reading this blog. ;-)
...and, that's it for now. Not that I'm sharing ALL the new and cool shiny toys we're going to bring to the conference. That would be too much infodumping. I have to leave a little cliffhanger.
