Upcoming -- ACFW yearly conference!

Are you a novelist or want to be one? (Wait, didn't that sound like that old magazine ad, "Be a model or just look like one? --LOL) If so, it's still not too late to register for the conference.

Six weeks from today I'll be hopping a plane to Dallas, TX for the yearly ACFW Writers Conference. The early bird rates disappear on August 19th, so don't waste time if you're interested in going. This year's keynote speaker is Michael Hyatt.

Attending a writers conference is one of the best things you can do for your career. Just spending time with others who share your enthusiasm will fire you up. In addition you get to participate in excellent continuing sessions and  workshops. You'll have the opportunity to meet with agents, editors, and mentors. If you'd like, you can pay to get a critique of your work.

Best of all you'll make new friends and spend time with old ones talking about the craft of writing. ACFW is a very welcoming group, so if you don't know anyone, don't worry. The conference even hosts a first-time attendees orientation and a before-conference email loop. Check it out here.

So who will I see there? Are you going?
