I can’t believe it’s here! This time tomorrow Spring: Nature’s Revised Draft will be underway.









Are you ready?

Whether you are or not, here are a few quick things you can do this rainy day to help you get into the conference mindset. Review our amazing faculty and sessions one more time over at the regional website. And to get to know each presenter a little better, here are links back to the interviews we posted over the last couple of months:

Alex Arnold

Alyson Heller

Giuseppe Castellano

Don’t forget to get your own house in order! Laura’s blog post from yesterday on perfecting your book pitch is a must read. I also loved Larissa’s advice for pre-conference polishing. Digging back into our archives, here is a workshop for those of you looking to survive your first critique, which also gives some timeless conference tips.

So, get excited and get ready! For our first-timers – relax, have fun and take it all in. I promise you’ll leave energized, inspired and assured that, yes, you are where you belong! We’re all looking forward to meeting you, as well as seeing old friends.

Have a great Friday!
