Author Encore, And Advance Readers Ready
Following his remarkably successful keynote presentation at SD24, back by popular demand is Be The Media author David Mathison, this time with a much-requested workshop on everything authors need to know about seizing control of their "brand," their books, their future.
While there are a few yet to be added, the current list of confirmed Advance Submission Readers is now available to choose from. Those who've already registered for LA8 advance submission feedback can now select their reader(s) and email conference executive director Michael Steven Gregory with your choice(s). Do remember that, despite a significant portion of SCWC success stories resulting from submission to authors, it is the agents and editors who generally sell out first. Conference registration traditionally begins to spike late-June. If you're looking to submit to an agent, it’s suggested you pick 'em sooner than later.
We're ironing out some kinks in the new site, so please bare with us as we start filling in the schedule. There's still more workshop leaders to add, over 3-dozen workshops to announce and sort out, and at least one more special guest speaker to confirm. If there are any specific topics you wish addressed at the conference, be sure to let us know.
Speaking of the new site design, why not check out the Frequently Asked Questions page and tell us what you think on the SCWC Facebook group. Meantime, to tide you over 'til the next update, watch episode 2 of our SCWC re-enactment series, Writers Recap. This one's called "Rejection Exception." Anybody relate?
