Catholic Writers Guild puts on an annual online conference (CWCO, or Catholic Writers Online Conference), which I attended for the first time. And was I amazed! For a nominal fee of $30-$45, depending on membership status, attendees received an avalanche of quality information. From craft to marketing, from examining both the nitty gritty and the big picture, experts from many fields gathered to share information, insights, and tips for both the traditionally and independently published. Publishers came to hear pitches, and the more experienced helped those pitching refine their brief presentations. For any Catholic writers out there who are interested in a like-minded and extremely wide-ranging group (genre-wise), check out the organization. The next CWCO comes up in February. With access to videos of the lectures after the actual conference closes, you can’t go wrong!
And in another first, I presented a module on craft, specifically, on characterization – a new experience that ended up being an honor and a delight! As a thank you to the participants, I offered a drawing for audio codes to my audio books. So, without further ado, the WINNERS ARE:
Congratulations!!!! I will contact each of you by the weekend with your codes. Happy listening! And thanks for attending CWCO, for your questions at my presentation, and for visiting my site. ♥
