News: Top Ten Reasons to Attend 2010 Pennwriters Conference (#4)


The #4 reason to attend the 2010 Pennwriters Conference: a wide variety of classes.

At the 2010 conference, we've got about 40 one-hour workshops for you to choose from. They are grouped loosely into four categories—Perfect Your Craft, Know the Business, Branch Out, and Get Specific—so you can more easily find the best classes for you. Another great thing about our workshops is that they are "open enrollment." That means you don't have to preregister for any of our one-hour workshops; simply decide what you'd like to attend while you're at the conference.

Here's a sampling of some of our classes:

For those new to publishing, consider The Publishing Labyrinth with author Maria V. Snyder, Submission Tips: Before and After with agent Miriam Kriss, or Inside Children's Publishing with editor Barbara Lalicki.

For those who want to polish their prose, try Getting Conflict on the Page with professor and author Tim Esaias, Say What? (Dialogue Help) with Marta Perry, or Write Better Beginnings with author and writing coach Ramona DeFelice Long.

For those who need pointers on marketing, think about attending Effective Social Networking with agent Janet Reid or Marketing Made Easy with business coach Nate Hardy.

For those who are ready to submit, attend Tossing the Literary Dice with agent Alex Glass, No One Ever Died Writing a Synopsis with author Loree Lough, Pitch Perfect with author CJ Lyons, or Ins and Outs of Contracts with agent Jenny Bent.
