Will I be seeing any of you at AWP in Los Angeles this year? It's a giant industry conference with representatives from all walks of the writing life-self-pub indy authors, established traditional writers, MFA programs, lit mags, agents, and editors.
There's a giant list of panels here, which you can save to a schedule and then download as a PDF. I have mine prepared as a balance between learning and socialization, with plenty of free time to do spontaneous activities and just relax. Conferences can be overwhelming.
I plan to write about some of the panels I'll be attending both before and after the conference, and to share some conferencegoing tips that could be useful in any discipline in the next few days.
Meanwhile, just give me a shout if you'd like to meet up.
