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.
