I've attended the SATW workshop and the Heritage House with Robert Haru Fisher. Both great workshops and I still keep in touch with some of the writers. Networking's great along with content and wisdom from the instructors.

Hi ja,

good to hear feedback about the conferences listed. must admit they all sound good and the networking is the best part of it... just wish that they would hold them a little closer to my home in New Zealand or even in Australia.

Are you going to any writing conferences or workshops this coming year?

thanks for stopping by and sharing.


cheers,

Liz
