Annual Florida Writers Conference is this weekend!

In case the time has slipped past you as quickly as it has slipped past me this year, sit down and read the next sentence slowly: The 7th Annual Florida Writers Conference, sponsored by the Florida Writers Association, takes place this coming weekend! That’s November 14 through 16, 2008, at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary.

I mention the conference not only to remind you and urge you to attend but because I hope some of you will feel comfortable enough to share your experiences at our next group meeting, that’s the December 3 meeting of the Orlando Area Writers Group (Florida Writers Association). During the meeting, we will focus on reviewing the annual conference and identifying the one or two or three sessions that inspired you or enlightened you the most.

All you really need to do is take some extra notes during those conference sessions. Then, in the next couple of weeks, I’ll post another blog entry with further instructions.

We won’t put any pressure on you to create a PowerPoint presentation or to polish your words for a recording, and you won’t even have to fit into a specified time limit. Just bring a simple description of what sessions you attended and your notes about some of the highlights that might be helpful and encouraging to your fellow group members who attended another session or who could not make the conference. You can even team up with another member if you like.

If you want to plan ahead, this link will jump you to the session decriptions.

I’ll be back in touch in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime, have a great conference! And, thanks, in advance, for your participation.
