Online Writer’s Conferences

1 Comment

Most writers work on a tiny budget and have to save up to attend conferences and retreats. I do that myself. In the past few years or so, I’ve found more free online writer’s conferences. In previous posts I’ve mentioned the Muse Online Conference which is always in October and is a great way to attend and stay home or get great information around your work schedule and connect with other writers. The past couple of years this conference has included opportunities for feedback on manuscripts from experts and pitches to publishers and agents.

This week I’m plugged into the Book Marketing Conference Online. Four workshops are held each day Monday through Thursday. You can call in or get in through a computer link to listen to each session. Free memberships give you access to workshops and great handouts. Paid registrations give you additional access to listen at any time to previous workshops, transcripts of sessions, and other things.

The marketing with video presentation was very informative and gave several resources for video presentation and book trailers. Book trailers are like a one time promotion that continues to work for you. Put it up on YouTube and then put links to it throughout your social network, on your blog, and your website.

Find online conferences through online writer’s groups, yahoo, google, and Facebook or Twitter. They are a great of attending without traveling. You can spend the time in your comfy clothes with a tall glass of iced tea.
