Writers Conferences

Tis the season for writers conferences and I'm planning on attending a few. Here are some for my to-do list.

NiNoCon



Everyone can attend this one as it takes place online. What does NiNoCon stand for? Ninja Novel Conference, of course.  It's the lovely brain child of Ali Cross. Go check it out here for more information.

LTUE


Life The Universe and Everything is Feb 9th-11th in Provo, UT. I'm only going on Saturday, but there will still be big names like James Dashner, Dan Wells, Richard Paul Evens, and Brandon Mull to name a few. It's only $30 for all three days and $20 for just one day. So, if you live close by you won't want to miss this one!


LDS Storymakers


This one isn't until May, but it's best to sign up now as there are only 450 seats. I'm going to both days of this one and I am seriously excited. There will be some great speakers and I've submitted my 1st chapter to their contest. Super fun!

What conferences are you attending this year?

These look like a great variety of conferences. Though I don't have any planned, I like the idea of online conferences too, making it easy for writers to "attend."

I've enjoyed LTUE and LDStorymakers the last two years - so helpful. But this year I'm not planning on attending. I hope I don't regret it! I'm trying to focus more on actual writing than learning how to write. :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

YAY! I'm excited to meet you at both LTUE AND Storymakers! :D

Sara Bulla said...

I'll be at Storymakers and am so looking forward to it! Awesome! :) I've heard that LTUE is great too! Hey, Jennifer, we awarded you the Versatile Blogger! Come check it out on our blog, livetowrite1.blogspot.com. :)

I'm still trying to make it to LDStorymakers. Cross my fingers, I should have some of it figured out this week.

They should all be great experiences for you!

Cate Masters said...

I have a wishlist, but can't attend a real conference this year, so an online conference would be an excellent alternative. Thanks for the heads up!

Peggy Eddleman said...

I haven't heard of NiNoCon. Thanks for the heads up! I'm going to LTUE... but probably only Thursday and Friday (unless I end up being on a panel on Saturday). :'( But for sure I'll get to meet you at Storymakers! I'm excited!

Shallee said...

Ooh, I'm planning on LTUE and Storymakers as well! I love them both so much. Conferences are the best! Maybe we'll catch each other at one or the other. :)

Leigh Covington said...

Whoot-whoot! I plan on attending all of those too! I will only be at LTUE on Friday, but I'll be there :) Can't wait for them either! I am SO EXCITED!!! I'll also hopefully participate in WriteOnCon and LUW too. Crossing fingers. :)

Deana said...

Yay! I'm doing NiNoCon and going to LDS StoryMakers. All us blogging buddies really need to meet up:)

Melanie Fowler said...

I hope to attend all of them. I hope to run into you again sometime :)

Those conferences sound great. I can't afford to go to any for a while, but they're always worthwhile. I can't do the online one on Feb. 4th, but I'll pass on the info. Sounds really good. Thanks!

I'm going to the San Francisco Writer's Conference in a month. Oddly enough it fills me with a mix of excitement and foreboding. Hopefully more of the former;)

Anonymous said...

I'm going to Dragon*Con...does that count?

Lynn(e) Schmidt said...

So far, I'm only able to afford AWP in Chicago the last week of Februaray. But, hopefully I'll hit PNWA, and LeakyCon's Lit Day as well....stupid money :/

Also, super stoked that your blog is back up. Linking it to mine right meow :)

Shannon Lawrence said...

Cool! Thanks for passing these along. I hadn't heard of NiNoCon (or any of them, for that matter).

I'm a big fan of Pennwriters in Pennsylvania. It starts May 18th this year and one of the keynotes is Maria V. Snyder!
