WriteOnCon 2011!!

I am excited.


Because the dates for WriteOnCon 2011 have been announced!!

For those of you who have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, WriteOnCon is an online writer’s conference. The conference itself is dedicated to kidlit writers. To learn more about it, visit the WriteOnCon website. The conference will take place Tuesday – Thursday, August 16-18. Mark your calendars!

While you are on their site, check out the brilliant contest they have going right now. There is only one word for it…. WOW. This is an amazing opportunity to get a query critique or even an illustration critique from some fabulous individuals. There are eight total prizes. They are as follows:

Query Critiques from:

Sarah Davies with Greenhouse Literary
Jennifer Rofe with Andrea Brown Literary
Marietta Zacker with Nancy Gallt Literary
Beth Fleisher with Clear Sailing Creatives
Tina Wexler with ICM
Ginger Clark with Curtis Brown LTD

Finally, keep an eye out for the WriteOnCon live chats. They are super-informative and tons of fun.

While you are roaming the cyber sphere, check out the Author Blogs post by Meredith Barnes and this really cool Flow Chart on Kate Hart’s blog.


  1. Kristin,
    I still have to get over there and try to enter some of these. Lots of cool stuff going on. I signed up for the Write On Con last year, but then my hubby ended up planning our vacation during the same time (out in the wilderness with no internet--LOL).

  2. There are soooo many cool things happening!

    Hopefully your wilderness travels will not coincide with WriteOnCon this year. Haha! But vacations are fun, fun, fun! :)
