Excluding my regular critique group (except during COVID), I've probably had over 100 professional writing critiques. Some harsh, some dismissive, some encouraging, some insightful, some throwaways. I've made a substantial investment in my writing career and I've learned a solid professional critique can put you on an enlightened path.
Whew! The conference team has been working on the preparations for months and we are so excited about this workshop-based conference. Be prepared to work, be inspired, and meet new colleagues on October 19th, 8 – 5, Preservation Park, Oakland.
The masthead illustration is perfect!
Alice Feagan is the winner of our masthead contest. I am an autumn girl and I totally love these colors and characters. Truth be known, my favorite colors are purple, orange and lime green! So how could we go wrong!
