How to get the most from a conference

KlemsBlogHeaderHere’s a link to a Writers’ Digest blog about how to get the most from a writing conference. It offers some good, general advice. I especially like be courteous, make connections and be realistic. A conference is one of the few places you can expect professionals to make time to hear your pitch or discuss your plot problems. Nearly every week, I get a request to read somebody’s manuscript. But unless I know the person, the answer (for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is time) has to be no. But at a writing conference, that’s what I’m there for.
