They give a great opportunity for you to meet with fellow writers, professional writers, editors, agents, publishers (both traditional and independent), as well as give you excellent ideas for improving your work. You’ll learn promotional skills you would not have otherwise thought you needed- by the way, every writer who publishes will have to promote themselves at some time, whether they are traditional or independently published. Attending a conference is all about finding out more about what you didn’t know you didn’t know. This is what DFWCon and many other writing conferences provide for you. Check it out! If you can’t make it this year, plan early to sign up for next years’ conference.
The current pricing for the conference is $399 through April 28, 2017.
