2010 Nationals – Guest Post: Kathy

The First Timer’s Orientation included information as to what the conference is not…it’s not a sorority social or party-hardy time; therefore, the importance of taking breaks and pacing were addressed.

What the RWA conference is—networking and an opportunity to learn craft and about publishing avenues.

The Q&A included information about the differences between PRO and PAN, editor/agent appointments, workshop schedules, spotlights, and the availability of audio (MP3) recordings of workshops.

The Spotlights, where individual publisher’s present information about who they are, what they are looking for, and their publication guidelines and stats, is intriguing.

My first impression of the conference, with its 2000+ writers, is the overall experience is overwhelming. My second impression: what an awesome opportunity. Third impression: why did I wait so long to participate?
