WriteOnCon is a free kidlit themed online conference where writers and aspiring authors can rub virtual elbows with agents, editors, and authors. You can ask industry professionals the questions you want to ask, have them look at your queries, see how they critique others' work, and you can do all that from the comfort of your own office chair. I've participated in WriteOnCon for the last two years, and I've learned so much about writing and the publishing industry by participating in this.
This year's WriteOnCon is on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 13 and August 14. I already marked my calendar! You know how some people keep checking back at conference web sites to see updates on schedules or speakers? I'm sooo that person!
For any of you who can't make it out to a kidlit writing conference, but want some of the benefits of being at one, I recommend you give WriteOnCon a try.
Have you participated in WriteOnCon before?
For WriteOnCon newbies, online chats with industry professionals occur throughout the conference. Which kidlit authors, agents, or editors would you like to do an online chat with? For me, I would love to do online chats with J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins, and Amanda Hocking, just to name a few peeps.
