from August the 10th to the 12th I attended the first ever WriteOnCon, an online conference for kidlit writers. It was an absolutely stunning experience for me. Of course, there was much advice I had heard before but never this compact and in one place (check out the site since all the great stuff will still be available). I got to experience some agents I have queried in the past or will query soon (best were the life sessions), and I suddenly understood some of their rejections/responses. Also, I learned how to pronounce query!
Make sure that you join WriteOnCon 2011 if you are writing kidlit. I'll keep you posted (literally) when it will come.
Have a great day,
