If you're an aspiring writer this post is for you. The end of October, Myrtle Beach plays host to the South Carolina Writers Conference. What a beautiful setting and perfect opportunity. The conference is full of great sessions to help perfect the craft. It's a great time to connect in a more intimate setting with writers, authors, agents and editors. Scott Eagan, Pamela Ahearn and Jenny Bent (to name a few) will be in attendance to hear pitches and lead sessions.
I'll be there too leading critique sessions and offering classes in dialogue, point of view, and historical research.
I know for me that a conference like this one was just what I needed to get started on the road towards my publishing goals. I went to a critique session like the ones offered at this conference and it helped me sell my manuscript nine months later.
