This is my official announcement. I will be attending the 29th Annual Romance Writers of America Conference in Washington D.C. from Wednesday July 15 to Saturday July 18.
What is this conference that I speak of?
Every year, writers and industry professionals come from all over the world to attend Romance Writers of America’s Annual Conference. The Annual Conference is a four-day event filled with educational workshops, career enhancement, and community involvement. At the conference, career-focused romance writers can anticipate:
- Education and information,
- Networking with fellow writers,
- Interaction with editors, agents, publishers, booksellers, and other romance publishing industry professionals. .
Admittance to all official RWA Conference events: the Literacy Autographing, Opening Session, workshops, Continental breakfasts, luncheons, and the Awards Ceremony and reception.
Hotel Rooms range from $210-$350 a night. It all depends if you are sharing a room with three other people and if any of them have RWA membership. If you have a membership the room is almost cut in half.
It is a four day whirlwind where you are constantly on the go. I barely slept more than four hours a night. There are parties, author meet and greats and more books than you can ever imagine. I came home with almost 50 books last year.
Any other questions you have that I may have not answered? And do I bring my demon sheep with me this time to cause some havoc? *heh heh*
