The other conference just popped up in my email through LinkedIn: Lexicon in Denton, TX in July. I liked the "no egos" carrot dangled. I don't do egos very well. (Read: I snicker up my sleeve!) Apparently there's a "bookstore" and author-signing area which has possibilities also. I've made a definite decision to attend that one.
So what's my personal criteria for a conference?
- Opportunities to learn
- Opporunity to meet other authors (not egos)
- Driving distance
What do you look for in a writing conference?
