Attending a conference one of the best things you can do for your writing career. Conferences offer a unique opportunity to network with other writers, meet agents and pitch your book, and learn how the publishing industry works from editors and professionals in the field.
There are more than three dozen exciting conferences in October. Workshops, retreats, and festivals are held in locations that span the country.
If you miss your perfect conference, don’t worry. Many of these are annual events, so plan ahead for next year! (I include conferences that are sold out so you can plan ahead.)
