C is for... Conferences and Events

Back in 2011, I held a week-long contest to celebrate the fact that I'd reached my 500th post, after nearly four years of blogging.
At the time, I sorted many of my previous posts into groups, which made for easy referencing, especially of story material. (Also because I've never tagged my posts!)
When I celebrated reaching my 1000th post during last year's A to Z Challenge there wasn't time to sort all the posts between 2011 and 2016.
What better time than now?

I’m actually going to go over 1,000, and collate all posts to the end of 2016! And I’m going to link to every single post (except for the A to Z posts, which are mostly summarized), something I didn’t do in my original 500 compilation, or even in my 900th post compilation.

I’ve got lots of fun themes coming up for each day -- and each day will also highlight a fellow blogger or two!

Today is...
Conferences and events!






Canadian Society of Children's Authors, Illustrators, and Performers (CANSCAIP) Workshop

I hosted the Virtual Surrey International Writers’ Conference! Here's the schedule, here's an update, a further update, and a wrap-up.

Irvine Welsh and Linwood Barclay at the Geneva International Book Fair

Baby! and an update (featuring knitted items from a friend!)

Joel Dicker at the Geneva International Book Fair



Today's featured blogger is...C Lee Mackenzie!



I've still never attended an in-person writers' conference!
If you have, what did you like best about it?

I last went to a conference in 2010 and had the chance to pitch to an agent, which wasn't as scary as I expected. I think the best part was attending some panel discussions which were lively and fun.
Hi Deniz - I've never been to a Conference ... but one day perhaps. Love Lee's blog and her take on life ... also enjoy reading about Geneva on your blog and 'that' baby! Cheers Hilary

I go to a lot of conferences but have blogged about only a few (mainly Calvin College's Festival of Faith and Writing) but then I try to avoid writing about work and most conferences aren't the source of a good time.

I've still never pitched to an agent in person... I'd be really really nervous!
