WRWA Con and Opportunities

This weekend I was in Madison for WRWA's fall conference. I had a great time hanging out with friends I hadn't seen in a while and making new friends as well. I woke up sick on Saturday and have been fighting neck spasms from an old whiplash accident, but after a good night's sleep, Sunday was far better for me physically. I truly enjoyed listening to all the speakers. What a great time this was!!

Now that I'm the acquiring editor for Quake (http://quakeme.com/submissions/), I'm going to offer to do pitch sessions at the Spring conference in Fon du Lac, WI May 6-7. If you're interested in joining WRWA, or just checking them out, you can see their website here: http://www.wrwa.net/index.htm

There's a great new ezine, Ink Plots at this site: http://www.wrwa.net/inkplots/index.htm and a new literary magazine called Creative Wisconsin will have its first issue released this winter. These are great venues for up and coming authors to see their work in print.

Okay, thanks for reading, I'll be back soon!
