Our special guest Eva Marie Everson chats with us about writers conferences!
Two of my favorite conferences – Florida Christian Writers Conference and Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference.
Benefits of Writers Conferences
Networking – “THE opportunity for writers to connect with other writers, agents, editors, and other creatives.”
How to Get Ready
Have a proposal ready.
Practice your pitch.
Research the agents and editors you want to meet with so you don’t waste time during your 15 minute appointments.
Listen during critiques and stay silent! Learn from them!
Create a “one sheet” with your information.
Print off business cards with your photo. Include the book title you’re proposing (printed on the back is fine!)
