Free Online Writing Conference for Children's Writers

I'm so excited about Write On Con 2012!

In case you don't know, this is an online writing conference for children's writers that takes place on August 14-15. There are opportunities for pitching agents or getting critiques, and getting your questions answered about writing for children. It's crammed with great stuff!

Here's a few of their tentatively scheduled events:

Tuesday, August 14, 8:30 AM (EDT): Live Picture Book Query Critique event with bestselling author Emma Walton Hamilton (previously submitted)

Wednesday, August 15, 11:15 AM (EDT): Live Q&A with literary agent Pamela van Hylckma Vlieg on Social Media/Blogging

Wednesday, August 15, 1 PM (EDT): Live critiques on Building Better Sentences with author Gennifer Albin (previously submitted)

And did I mention it's free? (But they do appreciate small donations to cover the expenses of organizing this fantastic opportunity -- and you can win extra prizes.)

If you're like me and you never seem to be able to get to an in person writing conference, you might want to check this one out. I learned a lot here last year, even though I was on vacation and couldn't participate in many events. Their transcripts stay up afterward, so you don't have to miss anything.


  1. So glad you're shouting out about this. And glad you were able to go to some on vacation. Because that's me this year. My mom, aunt & uncle will be visiting so I'll have to sneak in.

  2. I'm planning to stop in to WOC live for part of the time this year instead of just looking at transcripts. But I work at the polling place, and someone decided this year that WI needs to vote on August 14. So I'll be "late." :)

  3. I'm pumped too! They just posted today that the Ninja Agents will be back. WOOT!

  4. Hoping to participate this year, too. Thanks for the heads-up :-)

  5. I participated last year and it was great! Looking forward to this year.

  6. Thanks for the reminder! I love this online conference!

  7. I love the WriteOnCon is coming soon. And although I never can make the live events because of work, I can still play catch-up when I get free time.

  8. I wish I wasn't working during the live events but I guess other opportunities will present themselves.

    I have nominated you for a Sunshine Blogger Award, Please visit my blog within the next few days to participate.
    Thanks, Maribeth

  9. This sounds amazing! Thanks for passing on all the details. :)
