Help me attend a writers conference
I was one of 12 writers accepted to the Santa Barbara Author-Mentor Writer's Conference in February. Unfortunately I cannot afford the $3,800 price tag.
I had a breakthrough about my Antagonist that I believe will do a lot to make the manuscript sell-able.... and I still have a lot more assignments to get through before going. I also need to re-tool the manuscript. Meaning, write. A lot. And delete. A lot. A minor character must be made major, and major characters will have to recede into the background.
Did I mention that I'll be spending four days with, among others, Pulitzer Prize winners Jane Smiley and Robert Olen Butler, along with highly-respected agents and editors? Very excited!
I've still got $1,200 to raise, so please forward to any like-minded friends/family, or hey, even enemies.
You will all be on my acknowledgement / thanks page when I get this puppy published. :)
