My last word of conference advice for this week is:
Make the most of the connections you make during a conference.
You are going to meet writers who are on the same level as you. You are going to meet writers from the same area you live in. You are going to meet industry professionals, and some might request your project.
Think of what you could leave the conference with! You might find a prayer group, a critique group, an agent or a publishing house. You just need to be sure to follow up with those connections. If an agent or editor requests your project, please send it! If you form a friendship at a conference, don’t let that friendship end when the conference ends.
There are so many other tips for conferences I’d like to open up the comments section for you former conferees to share what you have learned through your experiences.
Thanks so much for reading and participating this week! Please check out the Books & Such agency schedule to see where we will be this year! As new conferences are added to our schedules we will update the calendar.
