Connect with Industry Experts

Learn about the market and the craft of writing. Make contact with editors, agents, and other writers. Socialize with people who care about the same things you do in an inspiring and enjoyable environment. As you prepare for the conference, think of questions you’d like answered during the 90 minute panel. Write them down and be prepared to take the microphone and ask them.
Take advantage of the opportunity to network with other writers, teachers, agents and editors at breaks and during lunch. Move around from table to table and engage in the conversations.
Check out the book table, not only for books written by the participants, but for additional books on the craft of writing in your genre, whether it be historical fiction or poetry or memoir.
Follow-up: Accept business cards and take the time to jot a note on the back of the card about the person who gave you the card, in case you decide to follow up with a new connection.
