I'm sure most of you already know about the awesome of WriteOnCon. But here's the info for any newcomers:
"WriteOnCon is an Online Children’s Writers Conference (rated MC-18, for Main Characters under 18 only) created by writers, for writers.
Who: That’s the best part—it’s for EVERYONE!
Attendees don’t need to take time off work, travel, or spend a truckload of money. They can enjoy the conference from the convenience of their own homes, for free—and the schedule is designed around working hours. (Transcripts are also available of the entire conference, should anyone have to miss part of it.) And everything for the conference takes place within this website, which means everyone with basic Internet access will be able to participate in all aspects of the conference—no additional software or technology required.
During the conference, keynote addresses, agent panels, and lectures are presented as blogs, vlogs, moderated chats, webinars, podcasts, and livestreaming. There is also a critique forum, where participants can post query letters and writing samples to receive helpful feedback and comments from their peers and industry professionals. And, as if that weren’t exciting enough, there are also daily contests, giving random winners everything from books to personalized critiques from agents." (Info Via WriteOnCon.com)
The schedule is live on the WriteOnCon website. I also recommend joining the forums where some of the live events will take place. You can meet other awesome writers and share your work on the critique threads. You might even get feedback (or a request) from one of the Ninja Agents stalking the boards.
Ninja Agents open the forum from August 13th, 2012
WriteOnCon will take place from August 14-15th, 2012
Hope to see you there!
