Whidbey Island Writer's Conference

This weekend is the annual Whidbey Writer's Conference. For the first time however, it's a full weekend event. In past years, the conference was one day.

What am I excited about? Besides the fact it's a local conference and I know several of the people organizing it? Let's see...
  • Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain (fabulous book that even I enjoyed even though it isn't normally my genre) will be there!!!
  • Sessions, instead of being held in conference rooms, are held in homes in and near Coupeville. These "chat houses" provide a friendly environment and relaxing setting, and a very unique format in which to conduct things.
  • It's Coupeville! Despite the fact it will probably rain, this town is adorable and the surroundings GORGEOUS.
  • Manuscript critiques and agent pitching
Check out the site here.

Looking forward to seeing those of you who can come. I'll be there as a volunteer, but please find me and say hi! (You can pitch me if you'd like, even though I won't formally be taking pitches.)

For those of you not attending, I'll be bragging about it on Monday and perhaps convince you to attend next year.

Happy writing!

Beautiful pictures--if not for the rain, it would be wonderful to have the sessions outside.

My critique sisters who live in Seattle have been trying to get me to go to this. Perhaps next year I'll have to put it on my schedule. Can't wait to hear all about it!

That sounds amazing! I live in Seattle, so I need to get my butt over to Whidbey next year!
