That's such an overused ploy, isn't it? Dangling a carrot like that just to get your attention? So mean and shallow of me.
But it's TRUE!
WriteOnCon is a free, online childrens' writers' conference from August 10-12, 2010. It's scheduled to take place outside normal working hours, so it's even do-able for the nine-to-fivers among us, and it boasts an agent and editor line-up that has me breaking out in cold sweats of excitement and fear. Most boards are closed until the conference opens, but there is a critique board that is absolutely humming for those of us who want to polish up our work a bit ahead of time.
Did I mention that it's free?
So go register, already!
