Does anyone else feel like October and November are just too full of writing conferences and events to keep up? Or are you hunkered down, dictating or pecking at a keyboard, busy making your writing quotas for NaNoWriMo, to even notice?
I was going to post this closer to the date, but critiques are offered -- for a nominal fee -- and they go quickly. This online conference, if you'll remember, takes place in February for the whopping price of $15. I wrote about last year's, and conference organizers have been sending out cute emails announcing it for weeks now.
I would recommend identifying a participating agent or editor who you think would be good for your MS, research him or her in advance, and sign up and pay for a critique. But always do your due diligence, first.
Last year I paid for the extended conference, $15. It gets you access to the talks and materials for an additional month, which enabled me to view on my own timeline because February is crazy-busy for us. I wanted to first get a feel of what it was, what was offered, what to reasonably expect, etc. I even won two YA hardcover romance novels, which would have cost me more than $15 to buy, for sure.
I am convinced the boards are useful for feedback, so I'm planning on doing this one again in 2019. I think my WIP will be ready by then. I think. No promises!
