Writer’s conferences are wonderful places to see and be seen, to get to know and be known. They can be great fun and highly educational. One word of caution — there are a few points of etiquette to observe.
Personally, I have had a great deal of experience when it comes to writer’s conferences. I was founder and coordinator for the Professionalism in Writing School, held in Tulsa, for fourteen years. As such, I know what goes on behind the scenes.
I could spout all kinds of advice, counsel, caution and admonitions to those who plan to attend a writer’s conference. However, this hilarious (to me it was hilarious) poem tells it SO much better than I ever could.
Enjoy!! But when the laughter dies down; please please take the lesson to heart.
