NYRC 2013: Day 2 Wrap-Up

As Day 2 of the New Year's Revisions Conference draws to a close, we want to thank all those who have commented, tweeted, retweeted, blogged, and facebooked about NYRC. 


NYRC 2013 is a free, online conference. Nobody involved is making any money. We're doing it for the love of books and writers. 

Support our participants by enjoying their books. We've put together a Conference Book Shop in this tab along the top of the page where you can peruse (and buy/pre-order) their literary gems.

We've seen large amounts of essential writing and publishing advice in the past two days, and we're not done yet! To catch up with what you may have missed yesterday, see the NYRC 2013: Day 1 Wrap-Up post. 

Here are today's goldy bits:

TOMORROW we will hear from a group of authors about the dreaded editor letter, talk about revising your teen voice, drinking, sobering up, more incredibly awesome agent advice, and yet more unique revising tips. 

At the end of the day, we'll add some pre-baby magic (not what it sounds like) and a giveaway that will blow your socks off. So wear socks you don't like.

    Thanks for another great day! I especially enjoyed Ms. Fonseca's piece on her method of revision, I tend to be visual in these things as well so I think her method would help me to rein in my manuscript to one manageable, visual piece. Thanks!
