ABOUT THIS PAGE: As a writer, it's always a good idea to hone your skills through various conferences, workshops and seminars. Ranging from local to national to even abroad, these events allow you to network with top agents and editors, workshop your writing, gain insight into the publishing industry and its trends, as well as make friends with writers just like yourself.  Who knows, you may even meet one of your favorite authors!
