ONLINE WRITERS CONFERENCE-free!

Did you hear me? Sorry for shouting but I think ALL of you will want this info loud and clear.

WriteOnCon Free Conference for TWO days in August 10-12.

Here is info from the site:

Welcome to WriteOnCon—the exciting online writer’s conference for children’s writers everywhere!

The seven of us: Jamie Harrington, Elana Johnson, Casey McCormick, Shannon Messenger, Lisa and Laura Roecker, and Jen Stayrook started this project with a single goal: paying it forward. We’d all heard so many writers tell us they wished they could attend a conference, but simply didn’t have the time or money. So we decided to bring a conference to them—a free online conference that anyone could attend in the convenience of their own homes. And so, WriteOnCon was born. (Rated MC-18: for main characters 18 and under.)

The response from industry professionals has been overwhelming (check out our awesome list of presenters) and we’ll be adding more names as people confirm. In the meantime, we suggest you mark your calendar for August 10-12, and tell your friends so they can be here too. We’re working hard to make this the best conference we can, and it’s going to be—dare we say—EPIC!
